1. Lincoln-Adelaida School Marker
Inscription.  On April 18, 1917, Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Sims deeded this site of one and one half acres to and for the Lincoln School for the sum of $10.00 dollars. The school was built in 1917 and operated as a one room school house from 1917-1964. The school started serving the Adelaida elementary students in grades 1-8, in the fall of 1917. By 1925, the school buildings and grounds began to serve the Adelaida community as a meeting place. Major alterations came in 1948 when electricity arrived. The old gasoline lanterns were replaced with four new electric light fixtures. The school continues to be the community center for regular local club meetings, government workshops and social functions.
 
Erected 2002 by Native Sons of the Golden West.
