Lincoln Acres

JSDH article page 178
Lincoln Acres is a subdivision on the hills above east National City, where La Vista Cemetery has been a prominent feature since 1870. Frank Kimball had been forced to sell or give away most of his ranch to get the railroad in the 1880s. Later subdivisions like Lincoln Acres, Paradise Hills, and the Bay Terraces would be privately developed starting in the 1920s but refuse annexation into the municipality of National City.
