Join members of Chesterfield Historical Society of Virginia’s African American History Committee for a day of Pleasant View School history, including free tours. Parking is available onsite. For details, call 804-751-4946.
Built in 1930, Pleasant View School was designated a Chesterfield County Historic Landmark in April 2017 in recognition of its significance as an authentic representation of early twentieth century education in the county. This one-room schoolhouse is Chesterfield’s best remaining example of African-American education in the segregated era. Pleasant View served as an elementary school until 1947. The Pleasant View Community Association maintained the building and used it as a community center from 1947 until 1998. Now owned by Chesterfield Parks and Recreation, this treasured landmark stands with its original exterior, hardwood floors and beaded-board walls and ceilings. Original desks, blackboard and other items from the past will be on display.
Registration: Free tours; no registration required.
