Lincoln Hall

LEED-NC Platinum

The historic Lincoln Hall, originally built in 1911 as Portland School District's Lincoln High School, is home today to PSU's thriving performing arts program. Restored and updated with environmental sustainability in mind, the historic building is the first on PSU’s campus to achieve LEED Platinum status. While the traditional brick and column façade looks much the same as it did when it was first built, step inside and you’ll notice dramatic changes.
