PLEASANT SPRINGS, TX
PLEASANT SPRINGS, TEXAS. Pleasant Springs is a rural community located about five miles northeast of Centerville in central Leon County. This settlement probably began in the late 1800s and was probably closely tied to a neighboring area known as Davis or Davisville. Early residents included the Davis and Jackson families, and the oldest marked grave in Pleasant Springs Cemetery is that of S. I. Jackson, who died in 1900. In 1915 the Davis-Pleasant Springs School, an African-American school, operated as part of the Centerville District. During the 1930s county highway maps listed the community of Davisville in the area of Pleasant Springs and showed a church, school, and two businesses. In the 1960s Pleasant Springs was listed on highway maps and was still depicted in the late 1990s. No population figures were available in 2000.
