Lynn Lane School

City/Town: Tulsa
Location Class: School
Year Built: 1928
Year Abandoned: 1975
Status: Demolished
Photojournalist: David Linde

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.

Special thanks to John Crockett for giving the location of this school and Janice Jones of Tulsa Public Schools for help researching the school.
