"The Good Will-Hinckley Home Association was organized in 1889 by George Walter Hinckley, a native of Guilford, Connecticut who trained both for the ministry and as a teacher. As a young man he was impressed by the changes effected in under-privileged and troubled youth when given a suitably nurturing environment, and to this end he established a home on a 125-acre (51 ha) farm in the northeastern part of Fairfield, Maine, a rural community in southern Somerset. Hinckley traveled widely to raise funds for the Good Will School, and had by his death in 1950 grown the campus to 3,000 acres (1,200 ha) and 45 buildings, and served more than 3,000 underprivileged and troubled youth."
