The Lincoln School was built for the education of African American students in 1936 by Works Projects Administration labor, located on Willow Street in Fayetteville. The school provided education for students from first grade through eighth grade. For students who wished to continue their education, the Fayetteville School District allocated a portion of its budget to send those students to the all-black Lincoln High School in Fort Smith.
