Another One Bites the Dust!
The main building is Gallaudet Hall, named for the school's founder, Thomas Gallaudet (left).
The building is 90 years old. It is a classical brick building with a white cupola. It is too big for a school with declining enrollment, and the high maintenance costs are strangling the school. They studied doing a major renovation, but it was uneconomic and unfinanceable. So, next week the school will start building a new, more efficient and smaller main building in front of Gallaudet Hall. When it is finished, Gallaudet Hall will be torn down.
The story is here.
