Welcome to the city of Pleasant Valley

In his seminal work “Now and Long Ago: A History of the Marion County Area.”, Glen R. Lough included a short quote written long ago by the Reverand I. A. Barnes.

“About one mile from the Fairmont City limits, along the Morgantown and Bridgeport pike, is one of Marion County’s beauty spots!” Pleasant Valley was further described by a County Assessor as “The most beautiful and prosperous Community in this county”

It still stands true today, and we welcome you to explore us!
