Protecting the cultural heritage of the Gullah-Geechee, one schoolhouse at a time

The Gullah-Geechee represent a particular aspect of African American history and culture that survived in the Low Country and Atlantic coastal islands of several southern US states. The Harrington Schoolhouse on St. Simon's Island, nearly 100 years old, is the last remaining schoolhouse on the island. The Friends of Harrington School Inc. was formed to save the property, and preservation efforts are currently underway.
