PLEASANT VALLEY, TEXAS (Kendall County). Pleasant Valley is a small rural community located six miles northeast of Boerne on Farm Road 475 in southeastern Kendall County. The Pleasant Valley school was established in the 1880s and became the focus of a common school district. In 1905 the school had one teacher and thirty-four students. A school and a few scattered houses marked the community on county highway maps in the 1940s. The Pleasant Valley school was consolidated with the Boerne Independent School District in 1957, and the school building was used as a community center. No population estimates for Pleasant Valley were available, although the community center appeared on maps of the area through the 1980s.
