Members of the Chesterfield Historical Society's African American History Committee will hold an Open House at Pleasant View School. Officially designated as a Chesterfield County Historic Landmark in April 2017, the Pleasant View school is an early twentieth century African American one room schoolhouse. It succeeds an earlier schoolhouse circa 1900. The school was built with financial support from the black community and opened in 1930 and closed in 1947. The Pleasant View Community Association maintained the building and used it from 1947 until 1998. Now owned by Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation Department, the school features many of the original architectural features including desks, blackboard, flooring, windows, walls, ceiling and the room divider.
