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.

This is fascinating! Where did you find this map?
This map was given to us within a book of stories of the first settlers of Pleasant View by a Pleasant View résident. They received it years ago during a Pleasant View Founders Day celebrations.
Can you find the book anywhere?
