PISGAH, TEXAS (Nacogdoches County). Pisgah, a rural community on Farm Road 1878, ten miles northeast of Nacogdoches in northeastern Nacogdoches, was established before 1900 and named for the biblical Pisgah. A school was in operation by 1904, when it had an enrollment of sixteen. During the mid-1930s Pisgah had a church, a store, and a number of houses. After World War II most of the residents moved away, and by the early 1990s only a church and a few scattered houses remained in the area. No population estimates were available.
