Only a few thousand people called Lincoln home before 1980, but that all changed as the suburbs of Sacramento sprawled outward. Now more than 50,000 live in the city, which is home to the first casino in the metro area. One landmark remains, however: the Gladding, McBean & Co. ceramics factory, which kept the town prosperous since its founding in 1875.
