This replica home illustrates how the Mormons met in homes for their schooling. There were no separate school buildings. Children attended together in neighborhoods and were taught by community members who had been certified by a board of regents, of which Calvin Pendleton was a member. Pendleton himself was not a teacher, but he was a strong supporter of education. He mostly practiced preventive medicine in Nauvoo. He eventually settled in Utah, where he continued to serve community members.
