Pleasantville is a charming village in the Town of Mount Pleasant,New York, in Westchester County which blends urban and suburban sensibilities, neighborliness and tranquility. The village’s relatively compact size at 1.8 square miles, means that its sidewalks get plenty of use.

Present-day Pleasantville dates back to the settlement of an Iroquois tribe which grew corn here and established trading routes prior to the arrival of European settlers in the late 1600’s. The area’s development evolved with the later arrival of the New York Central Railroad. Prior to the 1800’s, Pleasantville was referred to as Leggett’s Corner, and then Clark’s Corner, named after local property owner Henry Clark. In 1828 the village’s present name was chosen by its postmaster, Henry Romer. By the 1870’s Pleasantville experienced rapid growth and was home to numerous businesses, including a pickle factory, and local farmland was replaced by residential subdivisions and stately Victorian homes for the burgeoning middle class. The village was incorporated on March 16, 1897, and Pleasantville soon evolved into a desirable, modern suburb of New York.
