Pleasantville Bridge is a historic wooden covered bridge located at Oley Township in Berks County, Pennsylvania. It is a 126-foot-long (38 m), Burr Truss bridge, constructed between 1852 and 1856. It was built in two stages due to wood shortages after the Great Flood of 1850. It crosses the Little Manatawny Creek. It is one of five covered bridges remaining in Berks County.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981.[1]
