Community information

Welcome to the Town of Lincoln – serving the communities of Beamsville, Vineland, Vineland Station, Jordan, Jordan Station, Campden, Tintern, and Rockway. Located in the heart of the Niagara Region, the Town of Lincoln is known for its vineyards, wineries, restaurants and farming.

This is Lincoln’s first year participating in Doors Open and we are excited to show you what we have to offer. From our rich heritage to our rich soil, Lincoln is the champion of towns. Nothing compares to enjoying a glass of award-winning wine while overlooking the incredible Niagara Escarpment, or diving into a fresh farm-to-table-prepared meal at one of our decadent restaurants. Enjoy a hot “cuppa” from a quaint café, or make a pitstop for a basket of fresh produce from one of the many roadside stands. Feel the sand through your toes or take a refreshing dip in beautiful Lake Ontario. Explore the plush greenery of Charles Daley Park, perfect for basking in the sun and picnicking – or for taking in a picturesque sunset.

Get lost in our town’s heritage and culture by visiting our historical museum and libraries.

Lincoln: where we eat and drink what we grow!

Bench Brewing (formerly Maple Grove School) Doors Open Lincoln

New

Bench Brewing (formerly Maple Grove School)

This former school was the longest active school in Ontario, running for 182 years. The original building, destroyed by fire, was replaced with a red brick structure in 1864. This school eventually became too small for the community’s needs and was replaced by the current building – which operated as a school until 2014 when it was repurposed as Bench Brewing.
