Claude and Starck

— 1915 —

Lincoln School is a superb example of the Prairie School of architecture. Some of the reflections of this style are the bands of terra cotta and stone that emphasize the horizontal lines of the design, detailed terra cotta ornament on capitals and over the doors, and a modern expression, devoid of historical motifs. Lincoln School is the finest remaining of several similar school buildings in Wisconsin designed by the local architectural firm of Louis W. Claude and Edward F. Starck.
