OSD HISTORY

In the fall of 1908, the School for the Deaf was opened in Sulphur and has continued here since that time. At first, the school was held in rented buildings that were in the business section of town. It was not until the fall of 1913 that the first building on our present site was completed and the deaf had a permanent school home.
