Schools of the Past: Lincklaen: Joint District #7 Slab School, Dist. 8 & Seventh Day Adventist

Again with the almost complete lack of historical information this write finds it necessary to document three of the school districts in Lincklaen.

Joint District #7 known as the Slab School House is located just east of Lincklaen Center where the Joe Road and the Lincklaen Center Roads crossed near the brook at the foot of the hill. To all who view last week’s article the map will show that this school house was located on lot #120 and there is some confusion as to whether this is #7 or #3. It is up to history. The other #7 is located on Lot #9 which is known as the Rhode Island School. To say that this is confusing is putting it mildly.



District #8 was a school house located on the Murray Road. That is all we know of this school. For the adventurer Murray Road runs mostly through the Lincklaen State Forest (no guarantee regarding the condition of this road) and to reach this road, travel to Lincklaen Center, take Lincklaen Center Road, turn south on Miller’s Corners, then to Husted Road till it connects with Murray Road. It would be wise to check with the town highway foreman to determine if any of these roads are abandoned, if so, good luck with a 4-wheel drive vehicle.
