Pleasant Grove House Museum & Welcome Center

PGHM After Restoration

Pleasant Grove history is associated with many of the “founding families” of Fluvanna County and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Over one hundred and fifty years ago, William Douglas Haden purchased property which today is simply known as Pleasant Grove Park. The 1854 Pleasant Grove House is the only one of its kind seen from the road along Highway 53. Although much like many other contemporary houses in Virginia in plan, its place in the County’s agrarian landscape and its role in the County’s social and economic history are significant. Pleasant Grove was a vibrant and active farming operation, producing wheat, corn, oats and tobacco. Plantations similar to Pleasant Grove depended on the Rivanna bateaux and canal boats to transport harvested tobacco crops and the locally milled corn, wheat, and oat flour downriver to Richmond markets and warehouses.

A slice of Fluvanna history resides in the renovated Pleasant Grove House and Summer Kitchen Museums. The house also serves as the County Welcome Center for visitors along with housing exhibits relating to the history of transportation in Fluvanna including its reliance over the early years on the Rivanna and James rivers for commerce and movement of our agricultural production to Richmond and points east. To accommodate these uses, the County had a historically accurate two-story addition joined to the original building while restoring this facility in 2014. The addition contains a catering room, an elevator providing access for people with disabilities as well as a small reading room. The top floor of the original structure is used as office space for the Fluvanna Department of Parks and Recreation.

The Pleasant Grove House Museum at Pleasant Grove Park is located on Route 53, 2 miles after turning off Route 15. This 800 acre park something for everyone: Walk the Heritage Trail to the Rivanna River, take a jog on the cross country team’s 5k loop, enjoy the 18+ miles of multi-use trails, or just come out and enjoy the natural habitat or bird watching. The park consists of a softball, baseball and three (3) multi-use fields, e.g. soccer, lacrosse and football which are open to the public when not scheduled for league use. A 30’ x 100’ Pole Barn is available for picnics, special events and group outings. And best of all, it’s only 6 miles from the Food Lion at Lake Monticello or 8 miles from Fork Union.

The Trails at Pleasant Grove

sandybeachThe county purchased 969 acreas of farm land in 1994 when members of the Historical Society suggested that it would be an ideal location for a park public trail system. From the notion, the Fluvanna Heritage Trail Foundation was eventually formed that eventually Fluvanna Heritage Trail.  The Foundation countinues to work with Fluvanna County Parks and Recreation on the trails today which have grown to 22 miles of trails for everyone to enjoy. The Heritage Trail foundation also was the main catalyst in helping create and desgin the Eastern Trailhead, and the ADA accessible Julie King Sandy Beach Trail leading to the scenic Rivanna River. Get your own copy of the NEW trail map CLICK HERE!
