Leavenworth WA forest fire by Michael Stanford
The School for the Deaf in Malone, New York, USA
The school first opened at it’s first location in 1884, and in 1890, moved to these buildings. In 1929, 129 students enrolled, and the school did extremely well until 1936 when enrolment rates started to decline, which continued each year.
In 1941 the school started to cut salaries, staff, and closed four buildings. In 1943, only 73 students enrolled. The graduating class for that year was two boys and one girl. The school did not open again in September 1943.
