Pleasant Bend Plantation Town Community


Recommended Posts

Just finished reading this book about the history of the West Houston area, from Old Spring Branch out to Piney Point and all the way to what is now Highway 6. If you live in the area and have wanted to learn more about what was here before it became suburbs and urban sprawl, it is literally the book on the subject. Mostly because I don't know of any other books written about this area. It does get a little tedious from time to time, after about the third or fourth family of German settlers who all die of yellow fever or cholera, they all start to run together.

Pleasant Bend. - This beautiful place, which is situated about eight miles from this city, is one oo the most pleasant places in Harris County. Several extensive improvements have lately gone up. Mr. A.T. Morse has lately erected a large Gin House, also several new farms have been laid out. Crops look exceedingly well in this neighborhood. The neighborhoods meet every Sunday, and have preaching by Rev. J. Morse.
