The Mount Pleasant depot was built of pressed brick by the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad in 1912. Settled in the spring of 1833, Mount Pleasant was long known as the “Athens of Iowa” for its emphasis on education. Iowa Wesleyan College, the oldest college west of the Mississippi River, was founded in 1842. Arabella Bobb Mansfield, an Iowa Wesleyan graduate, was the first woman to pass the bar exam in the United States in 1869. Mount Pleasant and the surrounding towns which comprise Henry County were known for their leadership in human rights during the Civil War. This area was a stop on the Underground Railroad.
