Hawthorne Elementary School, 300 S 48th, Lincoln NE, 68510

LPS closed Hawthorne in 2008 to save money?

The Neighborhood fought hard to keep the School open but lost.

Hawthorne Elementary School was built in 1927 adjacent to pastures and with the growth of the city is now located in the center of Lincoln. An addition was added to each of the original buildings in 1952. Hawthorne Elementary is a Kindergarten through 5th grade school. [view in map]
