  1. Thank you for this lovely view with history.

    I was a student of KSD from 1942 to 1955.

    We think that this school is really wonderful~
    And hope that this school will stay on forever and ever.
    May God bless everyone in KENTUCKY who work hard to keep this school alive!

    K.S.D. has always inspired me, because a large number of my deaf ancestors and their relatives attended this school. My great, great, great Uncle Thomas Hoagland, age 30, was one of the first pupils enrolling at K.S.D. in 1823 and stayed there for 1 year. Later in 1826, my great, great grandmother (Zuelma Kincheloe), age 20, and great, great grandfather (William Hoagland),age 25 attended this school and were classmates. Few years later, they left the school to get married. Two out of their five children were deaf so they went to K.S.D. Annie Hoagland eventually married to a deaf teacher, John Blount. My great grandpa (Jesse Hoagland) stayed there until he was 16 yrs old and left the school during the Civil War. Lots of deaf cousins by the name of Hoagland, Reed and Hill also attended K.S.D.

    My father and I attended the Florida School for the Deaf.

    Hello everyone,
    I watched the video clip with inspiration. I am proud to say that five members of my family graduated from the Kentucky School for the Deaf…my uncle George Gordon, my father Robert H., my mother Eleanor Houston, my aunt Mary E. and my other aunt Agnes Fuchs (George’s wife). I was a student there from 1947 to 1950. I visited the museum some years ago and was concerned about the condition of the museum. After viewing the clip, I am glad that the museum looks much better. The school itself is rich with history. Good to see Barb Harris, Archie Harris and Carolyn Gulley on the tape. Keep going!

  6. Always so glad to see Jacob Hall (again) with beautiful interior renovation! Waving hands to the team of dedicated people who really did an outstanding job in making the KSD’s history alive again!
