Now known as Pisgah, the community, located in North Rankin County, was settled by the family of that name and is perhaps the oldest settlement in the northern part of the county. The Densons named the place where they crossed Pearl River Denson Landing, later calling it Densontown. The church founded by this family was named Mt. Pisgah, and the name eventually came to belong to the community, as well as the church. Another name, Sand Hill, also refers to the same community. (See Pisgah)
