The Spencer-Penn School served the small rural community of Spencer for seventy-seven years, not only as an educational institution, but also as the center of civic and social life. Today, in its new incarnation as the Spencer-Penn Centre, the renovated school stands as a testament to the remarkable volunteer spirit of the citizens of Spencer while serving once again as a vital community resource. Recognized by the National Register of Historic Places, it houses a library and a computer lab, hosts classes ranging from art to yoga, and provides space for banquets, conferences, receptions and concerts.

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.
This facility is operated in a nondiscriminatory manner with regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, age or handicap. Complaints of discrimination may be sent to the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, Washington, D.C. 20250.
