1949

Daily life at the Settlement School included the original use of the Red Barn, also called the Stock Barn.

“The young boys living in our dormitory aid our farm manager with the farm work while attending High School. Chickens, eggs, vegetables, honey, fruit find their way to the kitchen to feed the staff, teachers and dormitory students. Milk is provided by our registered Jersey herd. Surplus products are canned for the winter or are sold to nearby hotels. Since living around Gatlinburg often means returning to small farm life, a practical knowledge of farming by modern methods is a valuable contribution to the education of these boys.” – 1949 Pi Beta Phi Convention booklet excerpt

“I am glad to report that the barn is cleaned out and lime has been spread on the floors. Carl has worked on the chicken houses too. Both will be given a coat of white wash as soon as we can get to it. Many more weeds have been cut.” – Committee report by Pi Beta Phi Settlement School Director, Ruth Dyer
