Creech Reunion


A National Historic Landmark, Pine Mountain Settlement School was founded in 1913 as a school for children in Kentucky's remote southeastern mountains and a social center for surrounding communities. The school was the dream of a local man, William Creech Sr., who was troubled by the area's lack of educational opportunities, and the prevalence of social problems and rampant disease. He donated land for the school and recruited two women, Katherine Pettit of Lexington, Kentucky, and Ethel DeLong, a New Jersey native, to establish and run the new institution.

The decendants of William and Sally Creech congregate on the School grounds for the Creech Family reunion that is held annually on the second Sunday in August .

Family members bring covered dishes for a pot-luck dinner at noon.
