The Penn Center, formerly the Penn School, was founded on Saint Helena Island, South Carolina, by Northern abolitionist missionaries. The school was created to educate freed people, and was one of the first schools for African Americans in the U.S. Today, the Penn Center is a community center, and a museum of Gullah Culture.
