Pleasant Hill history book in the works

For the Daily Call

The Pleasant Hill Sesquicentennial Committee, in connection with M.T. Publishing Company, is sponsoring and compiling a pictorial history of Pleasant Hill in celebration of the village’s 150th anniversary.

“A Pictorial History of Pleasant Hill, Ohio” will contain hundreds of historical photos from our town, past and present. If you have some old pictures of Pleasant Hill that you would like to share, the committee would love to see them.

The 9” x 12” coffee-table-style book will be bound in a hard cover with a color dust jacket specially designed for this publication. It will include a minimum of 96 pages and will be printed on high-quality, acid-free glossy paper. The final page count will depend on the number of book orders, the community’s support is needed.

A copy is currently available at the discounted pre-publication price of $37.50. Order deadline is Nov. 15.

You may want to become a patron supporter also. As a significant member of the community you can put the history of your business, church, school, organization or family in print for future generations and historians to enjoy. All members of the Pleasant Hill area are invited to submit their written history for this professionally designed pictorial history book. Please include any information you feel pertinent: the date of your business, church, school, or organization was started, location, who founded it, when your family came to Pleasant Hill, etc. and a historic and current photo (if possible). Materials for the full page should consist of approximately 800 words with two photos or the equivalent. For a half page, submit the equivalent of 300 words and one photo.

Pages are $500 for a full page and $400 for a half page. A complimentary copy of the book is included with a full-page purchase. One-color (black and white) patron pages are being sold for $235 for a full-page and $185 for a half-page.
