PISGAH, TEXAS (Navarro County). Pisgah, on Pisgah Ridge seven miles south of Corsicana in south central Navarro County, was first settled in the late 1840s. A Pisgah post office opened in 1891 but closed the following year, and a school began operating at the site before the turn of the century. At its height around 1900 Pisgah had a school, several stores, a combination cotton gin and gristmill, and a church. In the mid-1930s the community still had a church, a school, a store, and a number of houses. After World War II the school was consolidated with the Richland school, and by the mid-1960s only a cemetery and a few widely scattered houses were left in the Pisgah area.
