Drake/Lindbergh School

Location: (District #9 Fractional) - Section 19, north side of Michigan Avenue, east of Drake Road (near the intersection of Michigan Ave and KL Ave).

Drake School was renamed Lindbergh School, presumably after aviator Charles Lindbergh, sometime after 1928. It was replaced by a new building “near the US-131 bridge” in the mid-1950s and was annexed to the Kalamazoo Public Schools in 1957.
