Abraham Lincoln High School – San Francisco CA


Academic unit; shop unit, 2 gyms, auditorium to be added later. 1 new building.

The October 3, 1938 edition of the Daily Pacific Builder reported that $750,000 in PWA funds had been allotted for the first unit of the construction of the Abraham Lincoln High School.

From the school's current website:
"The result of a 1938 bond measure approved by San Francisco voters to address the increasing population in the Western San Francisco area, Abraham Lincoln High School was incorporated into a modern three-story building that was completed at a cost of over $750,000 in 1940 with just 50 classrooms, a cafeteria, a football field, and a library. A little known iact is that the North and South Gymnasiums, the auditorium, and the bungalow expansion were completed much later as separate projects."
