HISTORICAL NOTE



Sunday school was held in the Pleasant View Schoolhouse located about 11 miles south of Wilcox, Nebraska beginning about 1900. In 1906-1907, revivals were held in the area, and a Christian minister conducted intermittent services. On Sunday, November 3, 1912, a group of twenty persons met at the Pleasant View School in order to organize a Christian church. Burton Davies served as the first regular pastor until 1914. On May 17, 1921, Pastor Edgar Goings suggested that the congregation purchase the old Ash Grove Store, which was then converted into a church building. This structure served until 1948, when the old building was torn down and a new church erected. On May 1, 1949, the new Pleasant View Christian Church was dedicated.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
