Penn School was established in 1862 to teach reading and trades to freed slaves, allowing them to earn a living. Today, as Penn Center, it promotes historic preservation and economic sustainability throughout the Sea Islands and is committed to community development, education and social justice. The site is a National Historic District Landmark and home to 50 historic buildings, including the York W. Bailey Museum, which is open Monday through Saturday.
