Lynn Lane School was built in 1928 and was named after the street on which it was built. Most Tulsa schools are named after a person, so this school is unique in this way. The school was annexed in 1962 and finally closed in 1975. In 1970, a girl was raped and murdered by a laborer and her body was found next door to the school. Also in the 70’s, a chlorine tank down the street at the Lynn Lane water treatment facility ruptured forcing families to seek shelter at the school.
