A pictorial history of Pleasanton by Dorothy Davis, Pleasanton Bicentennial Heritage Committee
This book is a project undertaken to celebrate the Bicentennial on a community level. The vision for developing a book came from Heritage Chairperson Callie Heinbaugh who pressured it with total dedication. The community hoped it would benefit the entire community, particularly Pleasanton’s children.
The concept of this book is not to duplicate the fine texts on Pleasanton’s history but to portray the scenes and events visually – to capture the past as well as the present in the spirit of selecting points from history rather than continuous historical perspective.
