Family
Since our community was first settled the key the many years Pleasant Hill has existed has been our familys. Generation after generation, we have produced strong and productive individuals. The challenges African Amercans faced in the south has always been over come by the power of togetherness and unity. To this day, everyone who has grown up in our community has done so because of ideals passed down from those who did all they could to insure the success of the Pleasant Hill community.
 
Community
Pleasant Hill has been a rock in Cass County since before the Civil War. Year after year, decade after deacade generations have passed through the community. Because of the determination of all who have passed through, the unity still remains to this day. The people of Pleasant Hill have experienced the full measure of life in a southern state. A war to perserve slavery, two world wars, a major economic desaster but through is all the community has remained strong. Our arms are always open to those who at one time or another were a part of our great community.
