Aerial View


The Lincoln Knolls neighborhood was a post war suburban style development located inside the city. In the early 1950’s the suburban style strip plaza known as the Lincoln Knolls Plaza flourished.

Today the plaza contains grocery stores, restaurants, and various other businesses which allows for convenient access to all kinds of shopping for neighborhood residents. The neighborhood still offers suburban living style, but with all of the conveniences of being within the city. Lincoln Knolls is located near the East Branch Public Library, Lincoln Park, many churches, and is only a ten minute drive from Youngstown State University.

The homes in the center of the neighborhood are smaller post war homes mainly built after the 1950's. Most cases many of the homes are smaller Ranch, Cape Cod, and Bungalow style homes.

In City:

NOTE: A number of surrounding communities have open enrollment in their school district. These communities offer private school options, as well. This option is a consideration while living in the City of Youngstown because there is virtually no traffic congestion in the region.

Some schools on this list might offer curriculum for children with special needs. Nevertheless, additional schools do exist in the City and surrounding communities that specialize in providing such services.
