Wisconsin Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired
Backstory and Context
This institution has always received immense support from the community during times of struggle. In 1874 there was an immense fire that contributed to the death of two individuals in the school. Many people and organizations came together to provide funding in order to rebuild and continue to support the visually impaired population of Wisconsin. Despite going through several name changes, vigorous campus building growth in the 20th century, and mounting threats of being closed, the Wisconsin Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired continues to exist today.
