Gahanna-Jefferson Schools’ old Lincoln Elementary School demolished
The mural of the "Flying Monkey's Tree House" is still visible early on as crews from Loewendick Demolition Contractors tear down the old Lincoln Elementary School on July 5. The school was built in the 1950s.

Gahanna-Jefferson Community Schools’ Lincoln Elementary School, serving as a residence away from house for 1000’s of students and workers, was demolished July 5 to make home for the new Gahanna Lincoln Significant College campus.

Judy Hengstebeck, the district’s communications coordinator, said the elementary school, at 515 Havens Corners Road, was crafted from 1956 to 1957 and was torn down about 7:30 a.m. in pouring rain, lightning and thunder.

Retired educator Dorothy Anderson, who labored there 30 a long time, together with 1990 by way of 2003 as principal, was catching a flight again to Tucson, Arizona, about 10 a.m. but couldn’t carry herself to go by the faculty.

She had been in town going to spouse and children and celebrating a friend’s 90th birthday.

Anderson claimed Lincoln was “a residence away from household,” through a July 2 cellphone interview.
