Pleasant View Historic Site Flyer-page-001

The historic Pleasant View community invites families to help celebrate its 150th anniversary and learn more about Montgomery County’s unique history. The anniversary celebration will be held on Saturday, June 23, 12 -4 p.m., at 11810 Darnestown Road, Gaithersburg, MD, 20878. As part of the celebration, speakers will share the significance of Pleasant View, a small black community established immediately after the Civil War in 1868.

The founders’ intention was to create a site that would serve African Americans in numerous capacities: a church, a cemetery, a gathering space, and a school. Today the land serves as a historic site, and the buildings tell a vibrant story of Montgomery County’s past.

The event will also feature live music, food provided by Urban-Bar-B-Que, and family-friendly activities.

Admission and activities are free but your RSVP is greatly appreciated.
