Formerly named Pelton Park, this block of land was originally bought by Mr. John Jennings
and Mrs. Thirza Pelton for the campus of Cleveland University. When the university closed
in 1855, the land continued to be used as a park. The name was changed to Lincoln Park
after the Civil War when President Abraham Lincoln brought Union troops to the area. Today
the park is the center of recreation for Tremont and home to a city pool. Summer concerts
given by local musical talents take place in the park on the second Friday of the month.
