Pleasant Plains Real Estate


    In an effort to re-connect to its historical roots, the Pleasant Plains Historical Society was created by mayor Jim Verkuilan and his friends in 2009. Its stated purpose is “To acquire, restore and maintain historical sites surrounding the community.” The Historical Society promptly took steps to purchase the Clayville, Illinois site, a goal accomplished in 2010. Clayville, a Lincoln-era stagecoach stop, had been operated by a predecessor of the University of Illinois at Springfield from the 1970s until 1992. The Pleasant Plains Historical Society’s affiliate, Clayville Historic Site, now operates the stagecoach stop and 1824 tavern building.
