More Photos Added…

1 comment

I have uploaded some more photos to the site. These photos were donated to use by Phil Hildebrand and Martha Miller and family. It was also pointed out to me that the site is rather confusing to navigate. To fix this, I made the links open to new pages on your web browser. I think why this site may be confusing is because I am actually using two web sites. One to handle this blog page and act as a gateway to the site that houses the scanned documents. I chose to it this way so more information or meta-data can be shared about the photos.

Coming up sometime this fall will be a list of residents at the Oakwood Cemetery. My eventual goal is to have a virtual tour of the cemetery, but that will be quite an undertaking. Until then, Take Care. Brian

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
