About This Place
Pisgah is a city in Harrison County, Iowa, United States, along the Soldier River. The community is located in the midst of the modestly scenic Loess Hills. The population was 316 at the 2000 census.
The town's name is a biblical one chosen by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Mormons, who established a temporary settlement in central Iowa near a hill they christened Mount Pisgah.
Pisgah was the birthplace of Mexican-American War hero and Mormon Battalion organizer James Allen and of Major League Baseball third baseman Loren Babe. It is also the hometown of former Nebraska Cornhuskers and current Ohio Bobcat radio announcer Warren Swain
