HE SETTING IS IDYLLIC: A tree-lined drive winding through grassy hills, drawing you closer to a grand brick manor at the end. Open fields surround the land, and from the look of the elegant and stately buildings
dotted throughout the property, it would seem as though you’ve stumbled across an old English estate, the kind mentioned in fairy tales. In some ways this place is home to fairy tales, providing a happily ever after for the children who call it home. Currently over 30 children, between ages 5 and 18, do just that. This is Hutton Settlement, one of Spokane’s most unknown and amazing organizations.
