Conquest of Peru
Hidden among the hills, visited only by the steamboats plying their way up the old Missouri river, lay the historic village of Peru. The forest was being cleared and prairies broken by the best citizens the nation had to offer, gathered from the east and the south. From this community, seventeen representatives met in an old store building in September. 1865, and laid the first plans for an educational conquest of frontier Peru. Thus the little school had its beginning. I.ater it was necessary for the school sessions to be held in the basement of a nearby residence, while plans were under way for the erection of a school building.
I)r. J. M. McKenzie was persuaded to leave a private school at Pawnee City to take charge of the school here.
