Old Lincoln Days
Lincoln comes alive during Old Lincoln Days. This year is the seventy-fifth anniversary of “The Last Escape of Billy the Kid,” a pageant first produced in 1940, when local artist Peter Hurd played Billy. During the weekend the village is packed with 7,000 of its closest friends, reliving the frontier West with chuck-wagon cooks, blacksmiths, dancing girls, gunfighters, speakers, a parade, and three showings of the pageant. Vendors and food concessionaires will be on the scene. Seven museums of the Lincoln Historic Site will be open, including the Anderson-Freeman Visitor Center and the Murphy-Dolan Store, now known as the Old Lincoln County Courthouse.
