Discover Lincoln University, PA
Lincoln University, which is both a town and a college campus, was founded in 1854. It was originally named Ashmun Institute after a religious leader and social reformer, Jehudi Ashmun. One of the few higher education schools for the blacks, it was referred to as “the Black Princeton” because the founder, John Miller Dickey, was a Princeton graduate.
In 1866, a year after President Lincoln’s assassination, the school was renamed to Lincoln University in his honor. Today, the school is regarded as one of the top schools in the country. Notable alumni include US Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes, and the first presidents of Ghana and Nigeria, Kwame Nkrumah and Nnamdi Azikiwe, respectively.
The closest large town is Oxford, PA, about four miles southwest.
The Great Outdoors
Rent an RV and gain a world of adventure and fun. Though the area surrounding Lincoln University is primarily farmland, there are several small wilderness parks nearby. Nottingham Park is a fair-sized park, encompassing nearly 700 acres of land. A former feldspar and serpentine quarry, this park is a popular destination for rockhounds who seek a particular type of serpentine, a rare, light-green rock that’s found in only two other locations in North America. Anglers can pick from one of the two small ponds to catch bluegill, largemouth bass, channel catfish and brown bullhead. The park’s management offers loaner rods and tackle.
White Clay Creek Preserve in Landenberg is a moderate 2,000-acre park that features several miles of idyllic multi-use trails, ideal for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Across the Pennsylvania-Delaware border, White Clay Creek State Park, which is nearly 4,000 acres, has about 37 miles of trails for hiking and biking. The trails pass by several historic sites and scenic vistas. Although both parks are day-use, there’s plenty of parking that can accommodate a Lincoln University camper rental.

Paradocx Vineyard, which grows an Alsatian variety of grapes, specializes in crisp, dry whites. They also produce a limited quantity of reds using clones from the Finger Lakes. Enjoy the views of 100-acre rolling hills from their tasting room. Va La Vineyard, in Avondale, is an award-winning winery with a boutique tasting room set inside a 19th-century barn.

There’s nothing like sun-warmed fruit fresh off the vine. Several local farms run small produce stands and “u-pick” programs, in which guests can pick their own fruits or vegetables.

There are a handful of local mushroom farms, as well, with stands selling unusual -- and safe -- varieties that can be found only in Pennsylvania.
