How Urban Life Was Improved In The 19th Century by nate cornavaca

During the 19th century urban life changed for the better by the building of settlement houses, better sanitation conditions, and the assimilation of immigrants.

Back in the 1800's many people were suffering from poverty or immigrants who just moved to the country with no place to live, up until the first settlement houses. Settlement houses provided housing with good living conditions for the homeless and immigrants.

Sanitation reform played a big role back then. Street cleaners were introduced, sanitation inspections began, and health classes started to be taught in school.

During the 1800's there were so many immigrants coming to the United States that cities were overpopulated, however places like settlement houses helped these immigrants assimilate into american culture.
