Preserve Pleasant Grove Historic Site

The Friends of Pleasant Grove preserve and maintain the site of a former historically Black church, built by and for African and Native Americans in 1895 in the Carpenter Gothic style. The church closed its doors in 1968, and the building was taken on by the Friends of Pleasant Grove in 1983 to keep it from being dismantled and its history lost due to development in the now affluent area. We maintain the church sanctuary space and lower level, home to the Frances K. Moore Memorial Museum, as well as a kitchen and bathroom.

We host three free cultural events for the community each year: our popular Black History Celebration, featuring uplifting traditional Black church music and dress; Pleasant Grove Day, when we open our site and museum doors to the community; and our Christmas Carol Sing-along, when we celebrate the holidays in festive historic surroundings.

We maintain a photo, artifact, and document archive of the founding--and founders--of Pleasant Grove in 1895, the establishment of the Friends in the 1980's, and the legacy of those events today. The Frances K. Moore Memorial Museum depicts the home lives of the first pastor's family in the early 1900's.
