American School For The Deaf To Replace Main Building

The American School for the Deaf plans to replace the main building on its West Hartford campus.  Building code violations prevent students from using most of 90-year-old Gaulladet Hall.  The cafeteria is the only part of the large old building that can be used.

Institutional Advancement Director Marilyn Rettig says the new, smaller building will cost about 19-million dollars.  She says it would have been more expensive to renovate the old building with its large white cupola, than to tear down the old building and start over with a new structure.  Work is expected to begin later this month.
