The Halifax School for the Deaf (The Deaf and Dumb Institution, Halifax) was an institution in Halifax, Nova Scotia that was founded in January 1856. It was the first school of the deaf in Atlantic Canada. (The Halifax School for the Blind was opened on Morris Street in 1871.) The first principal of the school was James Scott Hutton, who remained with the school 34 years. William Cunard (son of Sir Samuel Cunard) eventually built a school, which was completed in 1896 and was attended by 90 students. A monument marks the location of the home, which was erected by Eastern Canada Association of the Deaf.
