The following excerpt is taken from, "Oregon Georgraphic Names."

Nelscott, Lincoln County. "This has become an important summer resort on the Oregon Coast Highway. A letter by Mrs. ALma Anderson, published in North Lincoln Coast Guard for May 4, 1939, indicates that the name was formed by combining parts of the names of Charles P. Nelson and Dr. W.G. Scott, who opened the townsite in Apr 1926. Nelson died in Dec. 1946. For editorial comment about his activities, see Sunday Oregonian, Dec. 25, 1946. On Dec. 8, 1964, Nelscott voted to become part of a new community to be called Lincoln City."
