About Pleasant Hill, CA

Pleasant Hill is the home of College Park High SchoolDiablo Valley College, the Pleasant Hill Library of the Contra Costa County Library system, and the Pleasant Hill Recreation & Park District.

Monument Boulevard was named after the Soldiers Memorial Monument to commemorate soldiers of World War I. It was erected on December 11, 1927. The monument depicts one black and three white soldiers. It is 45 feet (14 metres) tall, constructed of formed concrete, and weighs 150 tons.

The area began to be developed in the 1920s, as former agricultural land was subdivided for housing. Monument Boulevard was named after the Soldiers Memorial Monument to commemorate soldiers of World War I. It was erected on December 11, 1927. The monument depicts one black and three white soldiers. It is 45 feet (14 metres) tall, constructed of formed concrete, and weighs 150 tons. In 1954 the monument was moved to its current site at Boyd Road and Contra Costa Boulevard to make way for upcoming highway construction.

Developed largely in the years following World War II, the area did not have a post office until 1948. The city incorporated in 1961.

A great place to get outdoors and spend some time with family.

On February 21, 1967, Century 21 Theaters opened an 895-seat dome theater between Monument Boulevard and Hookston Road (I-680 was later constructed passing west of here). Visible from the freeway after it was constructed, the futuristic dome-topped cinema became an iconic landmark for the newly incorporated city. The theater was designed by prolific Bay Area architect Vincent G. Raney. It had a distinctive 50-foot-high domed ceiling and oversized curved screen. The theater was initially built to showcase the Cinerama widescreen process developed in the 1950s. The screen was later updated to standard flat-screen. In 1973, four additional single-screen auditoriums were added to the front of the building. Renamed as Century 5 Theatres, it continued to be known familiarly as the Dome.

The city hall of Pleasant Hill, completed in the late 20th century, has won several awards for architectural design.

For most of its history, Pleasant Hill did not have a true downtown or Main Street. In 1991, the city began planning the redevelopment of the area around the intersection of Monument and Contra Costa boulevards. In July 2000, Downtown Pleasant Hill finally opened. The privately owned and operated outdoor shopping center was designed to resemble a typical small Main Street.

Interior of the CinéArts “Dome” Theater on its last night of operation – April 21, 2013

Starting in 2003, CinéArts operated the former Century 5 Theatres, screening primarily independent and foreign films. Due to changes in viewing habits, as many people screened movies at home, business continued to decline. The theater’s property owner, SyWest Development, closed the Dome on April 21, 2013. On its last night of operation, CinéArts screened Stanley Kubrick’s classic 2001: A Space Odyssey. [More]

Contra Costa County

Taking its name from the Spanish for “opposite shore,” Contra Costa County sits due east from San Francisco along the shores of San Francisco Bay. The name, which dates to Mexican land grant days of the 1830s reflects the heritage of Spanish colonization, which can still be found in place names such as Mt. Diablo, which dominates the county landscape at 3,849 feet above sea level. Today Contra Costa County is home to more than a million people, most of whom live in the affluent suburbs of Concord, Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda, and Walnut Creek. The county is famed for its mild Mediterranean climate, its wealth of sunny open spaces served by biking, hiking, and equestrian trails, and its easy access to San Francisco via the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Interstate Highways.

Scott faced a real challenge when he took our listing. We had a lot of clean out to do to get the house ready to be shown. Scott was very helpful getting this task done. He then proceeded to get a full price cash deal. Scott was very pleasant and easy to deal with
