Lincoln School bricks for sale to benefit Tyrone Salvation Army

Yesterday workers from G&R Excavating & Demolition were busy dismantling the former Lincoln School building on Lincoln Avenue. The school was built in 1911 to serve as a high school, and in 1929 an addition was constructed for a junior high school. S&A Homes purchased the structure in 1999 after the present elementary school was completed. Nine years later, the historic building still was vacant and beyond cost-effective repair. Many Tyrone residents have fond memories of Lincoln School, and G&R owner Glenn Ray is offering a chance for people to purchase a piece of history. If anyone wants to purchase the unique bricks that once made up the building, they will be sold for $1 a brick and the money will be donated to the Tyrone Salvation Army. A coupon ad will appear in The Daily Herald this Saturday and next Thursday to explain how to acquire the Lincoln School bricks. Interested people can also call G&R’s office at 684-4424 for more information. (The Daily Herald/Kris Yaniello)
