The Pleasant Street neighborhood of Gainesville became a national historic district in 1989. It is bordered by Northwest First Street, Northwest Second Avenue, Northwest Sixth Street, and Northwest Eighth Avenue.

More than 250 of its area structures are considered to be historic buildings. Many were constructed in the early years of the 20th century. The majority of these residential buildings were created before the 1930s and among the styles of homes represented in the Pleasant Street neighborhood are bungalows, Colonial Revival, Eastlake, shotgun, and Queen Anne.

Two of the most prominent neighborhood landmarks are the brick red Mount Pleasant United Methodist Church and the Friendship Baptist Church, both of which are Romanesque Revival in style.

Today’s Pleasant Street residents are proud of this rich cultural heritage, and their diverse backgrounds make the neighborhood a melting pot of young families, college students, long-time residents, and upscale professionals. The neighborhood, along with adjacent Fifth Avenue, is undergoing a revitalization.

One part of that reinvigoration and appreciation of the neighborhood’s rich cultural past is the development of a historic heritage trail. Supported by the Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency, the trail will travel through the Pleasant Street and Fifth Avenue neighborhoods beginning at the A. Quinn Jones House.

The Pleasant Street community is also home to the Blount Center, located on Northwest Sixth Street. This Santa Fe College Center not only offers classes, but community outreach to local businesses and government offices. Its meeting space is often used by local government and civic groups.

Within walking distance of downtown Gainesville, this pedestrian-friendly community has access to all the amenities of the urban center, including the arts, entertainment, dining, shopping, and transportation.
