Pinckney Elementary School in Lawrence traces its history to the mid-19th century. The most recent building to house the school was built in the 1930s. But children’s voices are no longer heard in its hallways or the Sixth Street tunnel, which allowed students to avoid crossing the busy street. Last spring, the school board voted 4-3 to close Pinckney and another Lawrence elementary. Credit: Photos by Jeff Tuttle
