WHAT IS IN A NAME?

The name "Lynch School" dates back to 1900 when a one room school (above)
was built on land at S.E.162nd Avenue and Division Street. The acre of ground,
located in Multnomah County, Oregon had been donated by Patrick and Catherine
Lynch on March 13, 1900. The small School started with fifteen to twenty students
and increased in number until in 1914 there were about fifty students. There was
no running water or electricity in the building until at least 1924 or 1925. The site is
now the location of a Burgerville Restaurant on the N.E. corner along with other businesses.

An added note, the Lynch farm original property consisted of 160.3 acres granted
to Patrick and Catherine Lynch on August 1, 1874, under the Homestead Act
passed by Congress in 1862. The original deed granted the land to the Lynch
family and was signed by Ulysses S. Grant, then President of the United States.

In 1906, Italian immigrant Amedeo Obici, along with his
friend and business partner, Mario Peruzzi, founded
Planters Peanut Company in Wilkes-Barre, PA. He
started his career as a bellhop and fruit stand vender
in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Obici later moved to Wilkes-
Barre, opened his own fruit stand, and invested in a
peanut roaster. He turned peddler within a few years,
using a horse and wagon, and calling himself "The

is a division of
Kraft Foods.
