Lincoln County, Montana


        Lincoln County is nestled among the
    mountains in the extreme northwestern corner of
    the state. It was created in July 1909. The
    timber industry is the chief industry in the
    county. The agricultural areas are limited,
    the only considerable body of open land is
    located in the Tobacco Plains valley near
    Eureka. The Kootenai River traverses the
    county from west to east. The Libby Dam on the
    Kootenai River near the center of the county,
    forms Lake Koocanusa which extends up into
    Canada. The Yaak River runs through the
    northwestern corner of the county and joins the
    Kootenai River near the Montana/Idaho border.
