HISTORY OF THE CHAPTER

 

The chapter takes its name from the stream that enters into the North Fork of the Kentucky River and runs some 99 miles in length, through Hindman and Knott County, to its source near the Floyd County line.

 

Located at the forks of Troublesome Creek in Knott County is the Hindman Settlement School. Co-founder of the school, May Stone, was among the first generation of women to be active in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution. According to Stone's ledger, Hindman Settlement School was receiving gifts from the Daughters as early as 1904. In 1921, it became a NSDAR approved school. It is one of only six schools in the United States with such a designation.
