The Prudence Crandall House, also known as Elisha Payne House and as the Prudence Crandall School for Negro Girls, is a historic house museum at the junction of Connecticut Route 14 and 69 in the center of Canterbury, Connecticut. It is notable for having been the home of Prudence Crandall, the abolitionist and educator, and the school for African Americans which she ran from 1832 until 1834 when it was closed by mob violence. The building is now home to the Prudence Crandall Museum. For her brave actions at this home and school, Prudence Crandall is Connecticut's official state heroine. The house was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1991.
