Tearing down Gallaudet Hall

A building that's more than 90 years old will be demolished on the campus of Connecticut's the American School for the Deaf. The state Bond Commission today approved a multi-million dollar building project for the West Hartford school--most of which will go toward demolition of Gallaudet Hall. A group of alumni started an online petition to save the largest building on campus which has been the school's symbol for years, but to no avail. The new building is expected to be in use this fall. In fact, construction on the new facility has already started.
