About “The House on Henry Street”
This website – the online exhibition, timeline, walking tour and curricular materials – debuted in 2018 to celebrate Henry Street Settlement’s 125th anniversary. Other component of The House on Henry Street include public programs, an illustrated book of the same title (with a foreword by President Bill Clinton) and a permanent exhibition at the Settlement’s historic headquarters.
