Pleasant View School

Features

  1. Historical

Built in 1930 and designated a Chesterfield County Historic Landmark in April 2017, this one-room schoolhouse served as an elementary school until 1947. From 1947 to 1998, Pleasant View School was used as a community center managed by the Pleasant View Community Association.

Now, Pleasant View School stands as an authentic representation of early twentieth century African American education during the era of public-school segregation. Today, Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation, the Chesterfield Historical Society of Virginia - African American History Committee, and the local community, join to present the Pleasant View School as a proud reminder of the importance of education and community. It is Chesterfield’s best remaining example of African-American education in the segregated era.

The site is open to the public for selected events, and scheduled public tours throughout the year.
