Small update

no comments

I have added an advertisement from a 1984 Lee Town News newspaper. In big bold letters citizens of Pleasant Hill were encouraged to call their Councilmen and tell them to vote No! for the proposed gravel pit. I do not remember how that particular vote went, but eventually a gravel pit went in across from the proposed site. Another gravel pit was built a mile away on Hwy 163; it is now a central part of the Copper Creek neighborhood.

I have also uploaded a  picture  of the old city hall and fire station. I will be working on some photos from the Silver Anniversary celebration soon. If there is anything that you have that can be posted let us know. You can call the Pleasant Hill Library at 515.266.7815.

Thanks for stopping by,


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
