    Pisgah is the highest point in Union Township, although to the casual observer it seems to be on a general level with the surrounding country. It is higher than Lebanon and all points around. It was probably named by William BELCH; a pioneer of the place, and so called from the old church that stood on this land. The village has but 11 residences, a grocery store, post-office and a blacksmith*s shop. William BELCH came here as early as 1812 or 1815. He was a Pennsylvania German, and very energetic. He kept the first hotel of the place many years before he died, after which his son William kept it 15 or 20 years longer. William and James VAN HISE started a hotel about 1838, and also a store and post-office. This was the first post-office in Pisgah. It was subsequently kept by David CONOVER and James MIDDELTON, and now by S.M. SPRINKLE. The two VAN HISES also kept the first store. They carried on the business a number of years, and were the last to keep hotel.

    A still-house was erected in an early day by James IRWIN on the farm now owned by James IRWIN, his grandson. Mr. IRWIN came to OH before 1800, and settled first in Warren Co, and after a few years came to Pisgah and settled on 360 acres of choice lands. He started the first tan-yard. He was the grandfather of Governor IRWIN, of California. This distinguished man, William IRWIN, received a good education in the public schools, and subsequently in colleges, after which he went to California, about 1850 and for several years edited the leading paper of that state. He was afterward sent to the State Legislature, and later elected governor of that state. He has since that time been conspicuous in the management of state affairs and is known as a representative citizen of the country.

    The people of Pisgah, in an early time, attended church at Muddy Creek. This was a Baptist society just outside the county. Subsequently the Presbyterians erected a church building on the BELCH property. This house stood on the old Quakertown Road, near the village, and on the same lot upon which the school-house stood. The 2 buildings were within the same fencing. The school-house was made of round logs and the church of hewed logs. After a few years the church people built a brick house, and the school was moved into the old church building. This was on James IRWIN*s place and in 1835 or 1836 the district built the new brick school-house, on the identical spot on which stood the old log-house, and its remains, in a repaired condition, still stand, but the house is owned as private property. The district purchased land in 1862, when and where the present structure was erected. The church served its purpose for a long period of time, but for many years it has gone into disuse, save for an occasional service. The property was finally sold, and the organization has lost its identity.
