Lincoln, Norman high schools placed on National Register of Historic Places

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Two Kansas City high schools are now on the National Register of Historic Places.

Lincoln High School and Norman High School have both been placed on the list, honored for their architecture, design and history.

During segregation, Lincoln served as a school for African American students.

"This one was built in 1936, and at that time it was considered the most modern school in the district," said Elizabeth Rosin, of Rosin Preservation said. "It was built using money from The New Deal."
