Pleasant Hill Lake ...Celebrating our 80th year 1938-2018

Monday, October 15th, 2018 at 7 pm

Presented at Cleo Redd Fisher Museum in Loudonville, Ohio

Why did it take 12 years for Pleasant Hill Lake Park to open after the dam was completed?  Why did two villages around the lake disappear from the face of the earth? Whatever happened to the park’s airfields?

These and other questions will be answered in a casual history program about how the park, the lake and Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District land around the lake touched people’s lives and how they influenced its evolution, especially from 1946 to the present. 

FREE Program, open to the public

Presented by Louis Andres, Pleasant Hill Park Naturalist/Author

 The book, “Pleasant Hill Lake Park, Making Memories, 1938-2018 and Beyond.” co-authored by park naturalist Louis Andres and retired journalist Irv Oslin,  is a collection of photos, newspaper clippings, MWCD archives, and accounts from local historians, neighbors, and people who worked — and even lived — in the park. Copies of the book will be available for $10.00 day of the program.
