  Doodle Cooma Arms Hotel, Lutherans wouldn't enter
by iandsmith

34 km west of Henty is the small village of Pleasant Hills (proclaimed in 1892). The township has won awards for the Lutheran Cemetery where the headstones are in German, the flora of the Esplanade in the centre of the village, and the public hall (1912). Made of local pine it features a mural, memorabilia and a barbecue site (the key is available from the store/post office). There is also a wattle-and-daub Lutheran Church built in 1888 and still in use today. Nearby is an old dam and some abandoned mine shafts from the goldmining days.
