Pleasant Valley History and Stories Book
This history of Pleasant Valley illustrates the inter-connectedness of its residents, as family tree branches overlap from its first settlement in the early 1800s. Many residents can trace their families back five generations in Pleasant Valley and surrounding communities. This book opens a window to the past and provides a glimpse into what life would have been like for our ancestors in a time when hard work and determination were essential to survival, and the threat of the wilderness and the force of nature was real.
This community history is richly illustrated with hundreds of photos that document Pleasant Valley’s settlement, how it developed as a community, an account of the families who settled here — those who stayed, and those who moved on, the stories of their daily lives, of how world events affected their lives, stories of families and individuals who left to make their marks in other regions and professions, and stories of change — “for time stands still for no one.” (487 pages)
