Richmond Terrace Honors Past with Historical Marker, Dedication Ceremony

Richmond Heights, Missouri (November 12, 2019) – The City of Richmond Heights, Richmond Heights Historical Society, Lutheran Senior Services, Lutheran Foundation, and Richmond Terrace Assisted Living invite the public to attend the New Lincoln School Historical Marker Dedication Ceremony on Sunday, November 24, 2019. The ceremony begins at 3 p.m. at Richmond Terrace Assisted Living, 1633 Laclede Station Road. This was once the site of the former New Lincoln School, a school for African-American school children in the Maplewood-Richmond Heights School District until 1955. Part of the school is still being used today.

The marker was completed in November 2019 to honor not only the schools of the Hadley Township neighborhood, but also the churches and the community as a whole. This marker will honor and educate current and future residents about the historical significance of the area.

Richmond Heights Mayor Thomson says, “Join us to learn more about the wonderful history of our community as we dedicate this new historical marker. Dress warm! If you cannot attend, we hope you can take some time to visit it in the future.”

Following the ceremony, there will be light refreshments and tours inside Richmond Terrace Assisted Living. All are welcome.
