Phase II – Stabilization and Exterior Restoration -- is completed thanks to your generous donations and support. As we undertake Phase III -- Painting, HVAC, and Interior Finishes – we would like to show you the restoration progress and give you a preview of the programs and tours the SSAAHC will offer when The Harrington Cultural Center opens in January 2016.

In 2010 The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation named Harrington School a Places in Peril – an attention getting nomination that rallied preservationists and history loving locals. Most recently members of the board of The Georgia Trust personally donated funds to sponsor two windows. The Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor was created by the U.S. Congress in 2006. The Harrington School was an early key listing on the Corridor that runs from N.C. to northern Florida. Programs at the schoolhouse will tell the story of the Gullah Geechee community from freedom through civil rights.

Hope you will come to one of these previews and plan to join us in January 2016 for the Grand Opening.
