The mission of the Spencer-Penn School Preservation Organization is to provide an educational and special events center for Spencer and surrounding communities by preserving the structure, facilities, artifacts and history of the Spencer-Penn School. We envision a facility that provides programs to inform people about a variety of subjects, allows them to experience a variety of performing arts, and provides entertainment and healthy activities for their families. This facility also provides a place where they can celebrate special events in their lives.
