Fire At Historic Lincoln Home in Hingham

Fire damages the Samuel Lincoln House.

The Hingham Fire Department responded to a blaze at the historic Lincoln home just before 10 p.m. Thursday night.

The home was boarded up on Lincoln Street on Friday morning.  A Hingham  DPW official who was at the home said the home will most likely be repaired.

The historic home , which is 170 North Street, was the home of Samuel Lincoln, an ancestor of President Abraham Lincoln and one of the eight early settlers of Hingham with the same name.  Samuel Lincoln purchased the land in 1649 and seven generations of Lincoln descendants lived there.

The Hingham Fire Department was unavailable to speak on Friday morning.  Check back to Patch later today for more details.
