Welcome to Pleasantville

Located only 25 miles southeast of Des Moines in central Marion County, Iowa, Pleasantville offers a a small-town feel with large town amenities.

With a variety of services, businesses, restaurants and more in Pleasantville, we encourage you to visit and take a look around to see what our community offers!

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

During these uncertain times, our community needs to know Pleasantville is still open for business!   Because of COVID-19 , many of our member businesses and organizations have had to close, change normal schedules, offer alternate services (ex. curb side/delivery) or change how the public can contact them.

During the next several weeks, the Pleasantville Chamber of Commerce will be posting updated information on our member businesses and organizations hours of operation, alternate services, and alternate methods to contact them.  Please check this information page often!

   If you have questions about how you can help any of our area businesses, don’t hesitate to reach out to them.  Our businesses need you now, more than ever!
