ABILENE, TX – Located at 1699 S. 1st Street, the old Lincoln School campus is a nationally recognized historical property. All Abilene residents would agree that this building has been a mainstay of Abilene, and it is hoped the Lincoln School campus will continue to serve our citizens in some manner in our future.

With that said, the Police Department needs your help to guard this building against vandalism and trespass. The building is currently owned by the City of Abilene, and many measures have been put in place to safeguard it from illegal activity. Fences have been improved, lighting has been increased, and Abilene Officers are actively patrolling the area. Our citizens, however, continue to be the first line of defense against crime, so we are asking citizens to help the Police Department by reporting suspicious behavior and trespass issues that they may observe. If a crime in progress is observed, please call 9-1-1. To report persons on the property that may not have committed an offense, please call the non-emergency number of (325) 673-8331. No persons have been authorized access to this building except for City employees and designees.

We can work together as a community to safeguard Lincoln and ensure that this historic building remains a critical part of our legacy.

Thank you,

Chief Stan Standridge
