At times with the lack of history for school districts, not only Lincklaen but elsewhere in Chenango County the ability to compile an interesting documentation, is to say the least, frustrating, and this week’s article is no exception to that rule.
The former historian. Joy Barber, forwarded to me what history she had which included Marion Poole’s writings.
In her documentation, “soon after the Civil War there were ten regular school districts in the township. Each was a frame construction and these same school districts existed until 1945 when centralization took over the rural areas. Many of the schools had been closed ten to fifteen years at the state had purchased much of the hilt farmland and planted it to pine trees in the 1930s. This writer will assume this conservation work was performed by what was known as the Civilian Conservation Corp (the brainchild of F. D. Roosevelt) to aid in pulling this nation out of the depression.
