The Pendennis School District was established formally in January 1898 and a one-room schoolhouse operated near the village of Pendennis in what is now the Municipality of Riverdale. The district dissolved in 1913 as it became part of the Rivers Consolidated School District. The former schoolhouse was used for a time as a residence, occupied successively by the Bilinski and Forman families. It was later moved to the Chapman Museum.
