Building a School

no comments

I have added a group of photos dated between 1941-1946, chronicling before the Pleasant Hill School before and after the 1943 fire. You can find the series of photos on the Omeka website that I put together, Building a School.

Also, now that spring is around the corner, I am planning to take back up the Cemetery Project and start adding photos to the names on the list of residents at the Oakwood Cemetery. This is going to take a while, but will be well worth the wait.

Again, if you have anything to share about Pleasant Hill, Iowa, please contact the Library at 515.266.7815.

Two Newspaper Articles

no comments

I have added two newspaper articles to the Omeka site, which can be accessed through the Pleasant Hill pages. The first story is from a 1946 article featuring the new brick school house and lower taxes. The second article from 1964, is about how Pleasant Hill has grown since it’s incorporation in 1956.

As always, please contact the library with any questions or comments. The good people at the library can be reached at (515) 262-9368, or email at
