The Richard Allen Cultural Center opened its doors on July 19,1992–across the street from the historic Bethel A.M.E. Church which was part of the Underground Railroad.
The center offers a glimpse into history of African-Americans and their profound effect on American society locally and nationwide. It was created to ensure that the rich heritage of African-Americans and their effect on American society would not be lost. The center is dedicated to researching, collecting, preserving and disseminating the history of African-Americans.
Their mission and purpose is to educate the public about the rich history of African-Americans and their contributions to every phase of American life.rn
