In February of 1926, the citizens of Pittsburg voted $450,000 in bonds to build three new schools, one of them being a new $110,000 school building, designed by the C. A. Smith Architectural Firm from Kansas City, on the site of the old Lincoln School. The other schools built were Eugene Field and Lakeside.

Lincoln School closed in 1994 and was consolidated with Eugene Field School at a new elementary school, Meadowlark built on East Twenty-Third east of Rouse. Lincoln School was torn down in Sept/Oct 2009 due to neglect and supposed cost of renovation. (ie: we don't know what to do with it so lets just tear it down)
