                                  Goodwin Hall Today - 2007

As mentioned on the Joiner Hall page, there are no funds available to preserve unoccupied
structures no matter if they are on the list of the National Register of Historic Places. With
the low number of students on campus today compared to the 570 students in our last
year of school, there is no motivation for the State of North Carolina to appropriate even
 minimal funds, such as roof replacement/repairs to prevent further roof leaks.

Currently, Goodwin Hall is partially used for storage.

Notice the glass missing in the top arch. An inside view behind this arch can be seen in
the latest issue (Summer 2007) of The Bugler. Congratulations to the NCSD Museum
volunteers for obtaining the opportunity to go down Memory Lane and setting off
an alarm in the process. Those "young'uns" still can't stay out of trouble, eh?

Someone suggested converting Goodwin and/or Joiner Halls to Senior housing
for the Deaf as a way to preserve these buildings. Privatizing government buildings
is not unheard of but losing a part of the campus to commercialization may
signal the end of the campus of NCSD as we know it today.

A better use would be to permit the City of Morganton and/or the Burke County
government to renovate these buildings for governmental use, thus preserving
the looks of the campus.

Converting these buildings to public school use may be a better idea...

Webmaster's Note:
These are just opinions, folks, right now nothing's changed
as to the immediate future use of Goodwin or Joiner Halls.
