Lincoln School Building
728 East Gorham Street
Madison, Wisconsin 53703-1522

Claude & Starck, 1915

A substantial and dignified three-storey school of light tan brick with white Sullivanesque terra cotta ornament. The eagle ornament over the main entrances was borrowed from George Elmslie’s design for the Merchants National Bank in Winona, Minnesota. The school closed in 1960, and was reopened as an art center; in 1985, the building was converted into apartments. Tall trees now prevent a clear view of the street facade; the opposite side of the building has a beautiful view of Lake Mendota.
