Pleasanton is a small neighborhood located at the curve of Wheeling Creek. It is mostly made up of residences, but there are a few businesses and restaurants along Washington Avenue. A large section of the neighborhood is Wheeling University — a private undergraduate and graduate university. The neighborhood used to be known as Mt. de Chantal, after the Mt. de Chantal Visitation Academy, a private school that used to exist on much of the area.
Pleasanton is almost entirely bounded by Wheeling Creek but is a short drive from any needed amenities or businesses. In addition, it is very close to both I-70 or Route 40 (National Road) for commuting and easy access. The neighborhood includes a playground and basketball court and is a short drive away from Wheeling Park.
