Dwindling enrollment was the primary reason for closing of Lincoln High School in 1962. Most South Bristol students went to Lincoln Academy in Damariscotta for their high school education, as many of their grandparents had done.
The same year a new elementary school was opened on the mainland not far from the bridge over the Gut.
