    Jacobs Hall, Kentucky School for the Deaf, Danville, KY, William R. Levin, Professor Emeritus of Art History at Centre College (2014) 

    Although this brochure holds only about a dozen pages, it also contains a fascinating and detailed history of Jacobs Hall, one of Danville's most significant buildings. Jacobs Hall rests on land owned by Kentucky School for the Deaf, but it was administered as part of Centre College for many years. The building has been designated a National Historic Landmark, and in recent years a museum has been established within Jacobs Hall that is dedicated to the history of KSD.
