On Friday, July 10, 2015, as part of a Heritage Montgomery Program, 75 Montgomery County elementary, middle and high school social studies department chairs visited Pleasant View. The group spent the day touring county African American historic sites, starting the day at the Montgomery County Historical Society and ending at the Josiah Henson Cabin.
At Pleasant View the group toured the former colored school and received a briefing on the site and The Quince Orchard Project inside the historic church. It was wonderful to see this group pour over the newspaper clippings, ask questions about the project, and offer suggestions for how their students might engage with the site. Their presence humbled us, and their ideas inspired us!
