Explore the Hindman Settlement School Campus

Dormitory from Creek

Situated in the heart of Hindman, Kentucky, the Hindman Settlement School campus spans several acres and offers many opportunities for the community to explore and engage with the school. Whether you’re stopping to enjoy the local shops, attending an event or a class, or simply strolling through, our campus has something for you.

Marie Stewart Craft Shop

The Marie Stewart Craft Shop is truly a one-of-a-kind store filled with traditional Appalachian crafts from Eastern Kentucky. The shop also provides a venue to showcase the consigned work of local artisans. Here’s a fun fact: the shop is fondly named in memory of Marie Stewart, who started attending Hindman Settlement School in 1919 and graduated as valedictorian of her class in 1929. Marie carried on the Hindman Settlement School craft tradition by creating many handmade items herself.

Visit the shop from 9:00am to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday, or on special occasions. If you’re not able to pay us a visit, enjoy our shop online! If you can’t find what you’re looking for or need help placing an order online, just give us a call anytime during business hours.
