Pendleton Home & School
LOCATION: 745 Kimball Street
As part of their faith, Latter-day Saints placed great emphasis on education. Many members in Nauvoo taught school in their homes or in civic buildings. Calvin Pendleton was well-educated and had good penmanship. He may have taught private lessons in his home, since he listed his occupation as a teacher. But the city also created a public school system that included common schools, secondary schools called seminaries, and a university.
