Students at the Maine School for the Deaf (later known as the Governor Baxter School for the Deaf) gather around a grand piano while their teacher directs them.

The residential school occupied several buildings at 85 Spring St. in Portland.

Since 2001, it is known as the Maine Educational Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. The building on Mackworth Island however, is still legally called the Governor Baxter School for the Deaf.
