The Settlement Idea
Established in 1902, Hindman Settlement School was the first rural social settlement school established in America and is currently the most successful. Hindman Settlement School was founded by May Stone and Katherine Pettit in Hindman, Kentucky, and the school soon became a model center for education, healthcare, and social services.
