Photo 2-XHA-11


I was born and raised in the town of Pisgah, Iowa. I attended this school 1946-1958. This was a great Family school and town. Many wonderful memories!

My family home is across the street behind the school house. The big box elder tree was still in the yard and hides the house. We didn't have far to walk to go to school..

I remember going to Kindergarten thru 8th grade here at Pisgah school! I played alot of basketball in that gym, and out front yard area is where we gathered with our horses for the Pisgah parade every July! And, there were Methodist Church Easter Sunrise services on the hill behind the school! My Grandpa Amos lived just across the street from the school!

My dad graduated from here, Mom taught there, and all 5 of us kids attended, as well.

My mother went here her whole life, graduated in 1952, she played basketball on the girls team for many years.

I was born and raised in Pisgah, Iowa. When Mom and Daddy Elmer and Carrie Nuzum brought me home from the hospital went to the stone house across the street from play ground, then moved to the corner across the street from the VFW hall and then to the house between the Chev Garage and RLDS Church. Elmer and Carrie run the cafe in Pisgah fist by the VFW and then on the corner where it still stand. My Uncle Grant and Daddy built that Cafe from the ground up and Daddy ran it from 1946 I think until his death in April of 1957. I graduated in the largest class that ever graduated in Pisgah Class of 54 and we had 25 in our class. I have a lot of wonderful Happy Memories of the little town and think about it a lot. Now live in Colorado for over 50 years but Pisgah will always be my upbringing and love to talk about it. Glad I had the fun of living there and being around all the great people. Don and I was married in 1956 in RLDS Church good beginning for us, and we have been married 63 years in June.
