Pleasant Hills is a village of 400 people located near Henty in the Riverina region, 500km from Sydney.

Pleasant Hills School of Arts seems to date from the early 1900s. Later, like other Schools of Arts, it adopted the name Literary Institute to better reflect its role in providing library services.

Shortly after the end of the First World War local residents, to honour those who had served in the war, installed a rather unique and very effective Honour Roll: a hand painted map of Australia with names of those who had served painted onto the map.

 Today the Pleasant Hills Literary Institute continues to serve its community as the local hall used by the CWA, the school and other local groups, and, of course, the whole community on ANZAC Day.
