Built between the years of 1887 and 1889, Pioneer Hall housed the first dormitory for the Pleasant Hill Academy, a mission school established in the 1884 to educate “mountain boys and girls in Christian education.” So important was Pioneer Hall, it was the first building in the county to be placed on the National Historic Register. Today, the museum features information and artifacts associated with the development and history of the Pleasant Hill community. Pioneer Hall Museum was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. Its hipped roof and many-paned windows stand in sharp contrast to the modern brick school just across the road. The structure is a community museum that tells the story of the area's earliest settlers and the beginnings of organized education and health care in the region.
