What was the first deaf community founded in Ohio?

I am doing a power point on a deaf community in Ohio. My teacher said i would be able to look up "deaf community in Ohio" and it would pull up, but of course.. It didn't. It was probably founded in the early 1800s and reached a size of about 5,000 people.

It was established in 1829, making it the fifth oldest residential school in the country. OSD is the only publicly funded residential school for the deaf in Ohio.
