The first school house in South Lincoln was built sometime before 1838. About 1878 a new school house was built about five hundred feet below the site of the first one. In 1896 it was decided to move this building into a more central location and it was moved to a lot across the road from the cemetery.
The new South Lincoln schoolhouse was built in 1923 and closed in 1955. It is now owned by the Community Progress Club and used as a community building.
