The Lincoln School of Stockton Elementary District
Lincoln Village was originally envisioned by influential journalist/civic leader James Hart Tully as an idyllic community where children could play safely–a “village” that would be far enough away from San Francisco but still within commuting distance. The school system served as one of the main attractions for families looking to relocate there: Lincoln School opened on June 21st 1913 with six classrooms and 114 students (tuition was $1300).
