The former Lincoln Memorial School in Lonsdale, most recently used as the Lincoln School Department’s administrative offices, may have a future as housing.

LINCOLN – There’s been a for sale sign up at the former Lincoln Memorial School on Lonsdale Avenue for a few months, and officials now say they are ready to get serious about their plans for the future of the building.

The two-and-a-half-story brick school, which sits at the corner of Lonsdale Avenue and Front Street/Route 123, was designed by architect John F. O’Malley in 1919. It was built around 1920-1922 as the town’s memorial to its World War I service members on the site of an earlier school run by the Lonsdale Company.

I would love the town and Mr Administrator finally readdress the sizes of the Rescue and Police Departments with all these new housing developments he is bringing into the town. Protect your residents and provide the proper services they deserve.
