Map of Early Pleasant View

Have you ever wondered what Pleasant View looked like when families started to settle in this area. Native Americans were neighbors at different times of the year. When these families came they didn’t have empty houses available for purchase. They worked hard constructing living quarters from resources that were abundant in the area. They cleared fields and planted seeds for food. How blessed are we to have so much at this time.  I was given this map and thought it would be fun for all to see.
