|Satellite view showing Lincoln, capital and the second most populous city of the State of Nebraska (behind Omaha) in the United States, located in the southeastern part of the state.
The city was founded in 1859 when settlers platted a town on the east bank of Salt Creek and named it Lancaster. The idea was the exploitation of salt, which was a precious commodity on the prairie in that time. In 1867 Nebraska became the 37th state and the government was in need for a capital in a more central location than Omaha was. A three-man! commission chose Lancaster, which was then renamed after the sixteenth President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln.
To insure a firm economic foundation for the capital, the legislature located not only the state government in Lincoln but also other major state institutions -- the university, the penitentiary, and an insane asylum.
Today Lincoln has a population of about 268,000 inhabitants (in 2014).
The city is home to the University of Nebraska.
