History of City and Country

Since opening in Greenwich Village in 1914, City and Country has been informed by its neighborhood and the many dynamic personalities that have passed through its doors. In this section of the exhibit, we explore the various aspects of the Village that influenced the School’s early development, as well as the life experiences that led founder Caroline Pratt to the innovative educational philosophy upon which she based her experimental school.
