Pine Mountain Settlement School (Pine Mountain, Ky.)

Hide Profile

Pine Mountain Settlement School was incorporated by Katherine Pettit and Ethel DeLong in 1913 and operated as a boarding school until 1949. In addition to regular academic subjects, students were involved in traditional music and dance activities, and a labor program that helped run the school and develop useful skills. In the 1930s the curriculum was refocused towards trade professions and skills for rural community living. During the 1940s, the school temporarily came under the administration of Berea College due to financial problems. In 1949, the boarding program ended and Pine Mountain became part of the Harlan County school system. Since the 1960s, the school has operated an environmental education program that serves a wide variety of school age and adult groups.
