Woman’s Exchange of St. Augustine    

The Woman’s Exchange of St. Augustine is the second oldest non-profit organization in the nation’s oldest city. The Exchange manages the Pena Peck House. It was founded in 1892 by the Whatsoever Circle, International Order of The King’s Daughters and Sons. Their mission is women helping women through selling handcrafts in their gift shop and providing scholarships to women who are returning to college later in life.
