Mount Pleasant School – 213 Raymond George Way Sit in Comfort The land was donated as early as 1888 by J.R. Couts, one of Weatherford’s leading citizens and a banker. It was called the Colored School and was built as a one-room structure in 1907. As the community grew the school grew, too, adding additional rooms and indoor bathroom facilities replacing the outdoor pump and outhouse. The Mount Pleasant School is now owned by the City of Weatherford and is used as a community meeting place.

They called their home White Shadows and what you see there today is the result of many a long hard day with pick, shovel and even dynamite. The beautiful home is nestled quite comfortably among boulders, ponds, fountains and a waterfall. This unique treasure is now owned by the City of Weatherford and maintained by the Parks and Recreation Department. 83
