North Carolina School for the Blind and Deaf Dormitory

Architect Frank P. Milburn designed this Chateauesque building that stands on Caswell Square, one of the five public squares in the original 1792 plan for Raleigh. The dormitory comprises a hip-roofed main block with parapeted gable projections and engaged towers. The only survivor from the campus of the first state-supported school for the blind and deaf in North Carolina, it is used by the state for offices.
