Once a thriving port on the Mississippi River, Penton today is covered by farmfield, forest, and a portion of the Mississippi Levee. Nothing remains of the original settlement but a church called "Rising Sun Baptist Church". Where some original members and decedents of original members still attend. They even have a "Coming Home" service every year.
