Pleasant Plains

Pleasant Plains, off State Highway 110 fifteen miles northeast of Rusk in eastern Cherokee County, was probably first settled around the time of the Civil War. A school for black children was in operation there by 1896, when it had an enrollment of forty-three. In the mid-1930s the settlement had a church, a school, and a number of houses. The school was later closed, and in the early 1990s only a church and a few scattered houses remained in the area.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
