Lincoln High School


Portland High School was organized on April 26, 1869 when the forty-five students who had passed a written exam, gathered with their two teachers for classes. They met on the second floor of Portland's North School, located at NW 11th and Davis. By 1875, five students had completed sufficient requirements to be a part of the first graduation.

In 1874, the school had moved to Central School, located where Pioneer Square stands today. In 1885, a building to be used only as a high school was built at SW 14th & Morrison Streets. The school changed its name to Lincoln High School.

1912, a new building was constructed along the Park Blocks (pictured above). Today, that building is a part of Portland State University, and is called "Lincoln Hall."

1952, a new school was built on the property of the Jacob Kamm estate, where it still exists today.
