After Colonel W. P. Rend of Chicago acquired property at Weaver in 1904, the village became known as Rendville. In 1909, a steel tipple, a hotel, school, and several homes were built. The village was home to a company store.
In 1921, the mine at Weaver was renamed Old Ben Twenty, as a result of the sale of the Rend properties to the Old Ben Coal Corporation, in 1921. The mine closed in 1927.
The village was abandoned in 1938.
