 HISTORY
Pleasant View Skilled Nursing and Rehab is a 130 bed skilled nursing facility located in the rolling hills of southern Green County, allowing our residents a picturesque view of the rural landscape. We have provided residents 24 hour rehabilitative care, long term care and dementia care since 1969.

Pleasant View has a rich history that extends back to the 1860’s; the first poor farm for Green County was purchased in 1861 in the town of Mount Pleasant. The first ledger entry is dated February 1st, 1883.  Originally built to serve the needs of Green County citizens who were poor and mentally infirm, the facility was called the "Green County Asylum”, "The Poor Farm” and the "Green County Mental Hospital”. In 1969, new construction of our present facility was completed; North wings were added in 1973.


     
     


The farmstead barn at the Pleasant View Complex once housed the county-owned dairy herd. Pleasant View was the original "county farm" and for many years served as the home to the indigent, the elderly, and the mentally handicapped. Originally more than 300 acres, it was virtually a self-sustaining farm complete with a dairy herd, chickens, vegetable gardens, orchards and crop land. Residents worked in the bakery, the laundry, the kitchen, and the barn. They canned vegetables, and made their own butter. The first Green County "barn-raising" was at the Green County barn.


 
 
   

Pleasant View is fortunate to have a skilled, dedicated employee base .  We are grateful to our volunteers and local groups who selflessly enrich our residents’ daily lives.  Pleasant View is overseen by the Green County Board of Supervisors, the Pleasant View Oversight Committee and also receives the generous support of the Green County community through a valued reputation and financial resources.
