Green River, Wy – Despite efforts to save the historic Lincoln School in Green River, the building has been torn down. When it was completed in 1922 the Art Deco school was considered among the most modern in the state. The school district gave the building to the city in 1996, but residents were unable to find a use for it. City Administrator Barry Cook says the city has begun the process of selling the land, possibly for much-needed single-family housing.
