When the United States entered the World War, the people of Mt. Pleasant loyally responded to every call. One hundred and eighteen boys enlisted from Mt. Pleasant and only three of them died in service.  In June 1918, there was a deposit of $7,500 in the Mt. Pleasant Com¬mercial and Savings Bank by the treasurer of the National American Red Cross, N.S. Nielsen. Local committees were organized within the local Red Cross. With much collaboration with the community, the Doughboy statute was erected to honor the soldiers that fought and died in World War II.

Age 20

The original Mt. Pleasant City Swimming Pool facility was built in 1942 and served the community and surrounding areas for 38 years. In June 1978, the swimming pool utility building was severely damaged when an early morning fire ravaged the roof, office, locker rooms, chlorinator, filters and other equipment. Arson was suspected as the cause of the fire and an investigation was launched. In June 1980, the pool re-opened and that swimming season got underway, but it would be the last year that the pool would be opened. It was officially closed by the city council, labeling it as too dilapidated to fix because of the poor conditions of the facilities.
