Henry Street Settlement presents The House on Henry Street exhibit in our headquarters at 265 Henry Street. This permanent interactive exhibition illuminates themes of social activism, urban poverty, and public health from the organization’s founding in 1893 to the present. The National Endowment for the Humanities–funded exhibition takes visitors through the history of the Settlement, known for its pioneering efforts in social service, health care, and the arts. Featuring voices and images from the Lower East Side, it illustrates waves of immigration to New York and the challenges newcomers faced amid rapid industrialization and urban crowding.
