LEST WE FORGET
Three score and three years ago. the pioneers living in the vicinity of the little river town called "Peru Landing" decided to establish a School of Learning. The first classes were held in the little store building which is still standing two doors south of the Post Office. When the school enlarged, the basement room of the house across the street north from the present site of the Peru studio was used as an additional classroom. The late Wilson E. Majors attended school in that room.
The following year of the school a small plot of ground was purchased for a building site. Mt. Vernon dormitory now stands on the site selected. The new building was used as the president's home, classrooms, and dormitory. The following year, through the efforts of Colonel Thomas J. Majors and Major William Dailey. Peru Academy became a state school. The first Legislature made an appropriation of three thousand dollars which was given to pay the salaries and expenses of running the school for the next two years. Major William Dailey. Reverend Burch, and Dr. Neal were the local men promoting the new school.
