New Mexico School for the Deaf – Santa Fe NM

Description

Constructed in 1935, after a design by Santa Fe architect Gordon F. Street, the Old Laundry and Health Center buildings were part of a campus expansion during the New Deal financed by the Federal Emergency Relief Administration and the Public Works Administration programs. When completed in 1937, at cost of approximately $400,000, the six new buildings expanding the New Mexico School Deaf campus were considered masterworks of Spanish-Pueblo Revival architecture.
