The History of Lincoln-Way North High School 
 
Frankfort (population 17,782) is located in north-central Will county in the northeastern portion of Illinois. The city is situated at the intersection of U.S. Route 30 (Lincoln Highway) and U.S. Route 45 (LaGrange Road). Frankfort is located about 13 miles east of Joliet. The area in which Frankfort is located was first settled by Native Americans with the first European settler arriving in 1831. The village of Frankfort was established in 1879. The town was named after a stockade was built by a man named Frank Jordan and was dubbed "Frank Jordan's Fort" which was later shortened to "Frank's Fort" and still later Frankfort (from a book titled "Place Names of Illinois"). A more thorough history of Frankfort is available at the web address of   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankfort,_Illinois .
 
Lincoln-Way North High School was opened in 2008 after a previous referendum was passed to build two new high schools in the Lincoln-Way school district to accommodate the projected influx of students. In 2007 Frankfort was, in fact, the 36th fastest growing suburb in the United States. Student enrollment projections, however, did not pan out. Due to financial difficulties the school district decided to close one of its four high schools. It was decided by the school board to close Lincoln-Way North High School at the end of the 2015-16 school year

A portion of the Lincoln-Way North High School building has been used by the Frankfort Square Park District since the school was closed. Recent talks in the neighboring school district of Summit Hill provide hope that the building may serve as a high school again in the future.
