Pleasant Hill [1]

The Pleasant Hill Residential Historic District is a large residential neighborhood situated in the heart of downtown Marshfield and is filled with 75 stately homes on wide streets and generous size lots with mature trees. Within the Pleasant Hill District, the Queen Anne style of architecture is well represented. Many of the stately homes are sited on two city lots and required the removal of a smaller house prior to construction.

The neighborhood is one of Marshfield's earliest neighborhoods. Several of its stately homes were residences of some of Marshfield's early civic leaders and prominent businessmen who were attracted to the neighborhood for its convenient location to the commercial district, to transportation, and to the clinic. It remains a neighborhood of beautiful houses and gardens.

Most of the homes in Pleasant Hill were built between 1880 and 1949.
