Pittsford School (Lincoln Avenue School)
35 Lincoln Avenue

This 3-story brick structure was constructed in 1916 after a fire destroyed an earlier building. Originally the building housed grades 1- 12 and accommodated 373 students and 14 teachers. Architecturally the building is a sophisticated but restrained example of Collegiate Gothic. Gothic features include the grouped tall narrow windows divided by projecting mullions, the end pavilion massing, and the parapeted entrance pavilion with monumental segmental-arch transom window and buttresses's.

This building housed all Pittsford school grades until Sutherland High School was built in 1953. The building then functioned as an elementary school until the school district over built its capacity and abandoned the building in 1971. The building was then sold to the Town of Pittsford for $1 and now houses the Town’s Department of Parks and Recreation.
