Today's Tour -- the American School for the Deaf

06/11/2019 | David


Edward Peltier and Jean Linderman from the American School for the Deaf came down today to take people on a tour of the former campus of their school – which, of course, is currently The Hartford.  They led an informative tour that showed people where the school’s various buildings had been, and they explained the connections the neighborhood still has to the school:  Asylum Avenue, Cogswell Street, and the statue of Alice Cogswell in Gallaudet Triangle.

Among the things we learned today:  students from the school once lobbied Hartford to change the name of Asylum Avenue to something else.

Ed and Jean will be back next year, so if you missed the tour today make sure you don’t miss out in 2020!
