Abstract

Pine Mountain Settlement School was founded in 1913, by Katherine Pettit and Ethel de Long. The two women received ninety-five acres of land from William Creech for the purpose of providing educational opportunities for the people of the Pine Mountain area of Harlan County, Kentucky.

Petit and de Long modeled their program after Jane Adam’s Hull House in Chicago. They hoped that their modern ideas about health, nutrition, work efficiency, farm management, and the cultural value of indigenous crafts would permeate the surrounding communities -- both through children and direct contact with adults.

Community outreach programs included a hospital and medical clinics that provided vaccinations, trachoma, dental, and maternity care. Health education was carried on in rural schools and extension centers that also offered homemaker’s groups, community recreation, and Sunday Schools.

Initially, the educational program included a boarding grade school that was followed by a high school program in the 1920s. The grade school was closed in the 1930s and the high school continued until 1949.

In addition to regular academic subjects, students were involved in traditional music, dance activities, and a labor program that helped run the school and develop useful skills. In the 1930s the curriculum was revised to focus mainly on trade professions and skills for rural community living. In 1949, the boarding program ended and Pine Mountain became part of the Harlan County school system. Since the 1960s, and as late as 2003, the school has operated an environmental education program serving a wide variety of school age and adult groups.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

The collection is comprised of official records, reports, meeting minutes, printed materials, correspondence, photographs, newspaper clippings and other materials documenting the founding, administration, operation, and activities of the Pine Mountain Settlement School. The collection documents issues and concerns of the school founders during the school’s first years (1913-1920s) and during the administration of school director, Burton Rogers (1949-1972) while also documenting the school’s goals and mission into the 21st century.
