Preserving Pleasantview

May is Idaho History Month with several interesting public events planned for the commemoration. The Pleasantview Association has spent several years passionately restoring the Pleasantview School on West Riverview Drive in Post Falls. Built in 1910 and originally part of the Coeur d'Alene School District, many of the original items such as desks and wood-burning stoves and even the originial school bell and tower remain. A framed honor roll of 19 students, some brothers, mark their enlistment date and branch of service in WWI.
Thanks to dedicated volunteers, the school is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This month the restoration efforts are being recognized by the Idaho State Historical Society with an Orchid Award. If you missed out on the Cowboy Breakfast at the school this weekend, pencil in September's breakfast.
