Biographical / Historical

Lincoln Junior High School was erected in 1923 as a three story masonry and wood structure. Located at 2121 12th Ave North (intersection with Penn Avenue) in North Minneapolis, it shared over 6 acres with Hay Elementary School. Students upon graduation would enter in to North High School. The north side of Minneapolis once held the largest concentration of Jews between Chicago and Denver, coalescing in the 1890s and flourishing through to the 1960s.
