The Chesterfield Historical Society of Virginia, in cooperation with the Chesterfield County Department of Parks and Recreation, presents an open house for Pleasant View School during Eppington Heritage Day. Pleasant View School is an early 20th century African-American schoolhouse. In 1924, the Chesterfield County School Board purchased two acres of land to construct a new school for blacks. Pleasant View School was built with the financial support of the African-American community. It opened in 1930 and closed in 1947. Now owned by the county’s Department of Parks and Recreation, the school features desks, blackboards, church pews, piano and other items from the past. The Chesterfield Historical Society will give tours all day.
The event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 1, 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
18430 River Rd., Chesterfield
Tours are free. Parking is available on site at the school.
