The Pine Mountain Settlement School has been awarded a 2008 Save America's Treasures grant from the National Park Service. The $138,575 grant will be used on 10 projects to repair historic buildings on campus.
The school will raise an amount equal to the grant to ensure completion of all the projects. The grant was one of 40 awarded by the park service.
Founded in 1913, Pine Mountain is historically significant as an example of a rural settlement school of the early 20th century.
