Kentucky School for the Deaf

  1. I'm not sure why this school is on this site. If this is the Danville, Kentucky campus, which it appearrs to be, it is still in full use.

  2. I think it is listed on here because many of the buildings look to not be in use. At least from the road that is the appearance.

  3. I am an alum of that school. The one that is covered in vines is the Old Lee Hall. It ceased use as a school building in 1980 when the campus was moved to other side of the street. It was used as a storage for a few years before it sat in it’s current state until recently. The nicer looking building next to it was Rogers Hall and was our gym for many years – closed sometime in the 90’s due to age and dwindling enrollment at the school. The third industrial looking building was the maintance shed/laundry house – laundry operations ceased in the 90’s and it is still in use with maintenance. There were 3 other buildings that stood along that street 2 were dorms: Gallaudet and Clerc Hall and McCowan Infirmary. All were torn down in the early 80’s.
