Vt Center For Deaf/hard Hearing

Tel: (802)258-9500
  • Thanks to a generous bequest by Colonel William Austine, a retired army officer who spent his final years in Brattleboro, the Austine School opened its doors to both Deaf and Blind students in the Fall of 1912.
  • In 1917, it was decided to devote Austine's resources exclusively to the education of the Deaf.
  • Holton Hall, the original building and now a historic landmark, became a home away from home for growing numbers of Deaf students.
  • As the student population increased, additional facilities were constructed resulting in the beautiful campus now known as Austine School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
