On Tuesday, April 15, 1817, in a building located on this site, the Connecticut Asylum for the Education of Deaf and Dumb Persons officially opened. The school was the first in America to teach deaf children and had a class of seven syudents. The name was changed to the American Asylum at Hartford in 1819. Today, it is the well known, American School for the Deaf.
"Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped." IS 35:5
"Here, is witnessed, for the first time in this western world, the affecting sight of a little group of fellow sufferer assembling for instruction, whom neither sex nor age, nor distance could prevent from hastening to embrace the first opportunity of aspiring to the privileges that we enjoy as rational, social and immortal beings."
- Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet
