Chese Festival 2015

The theme for the History Center’s 2015 Cheese Festival Open House will be “Pine Island Businesses – Past and Present”. We are asking anyone with information relative to any business in our area – past or present, to please give the information to us. Photos would be especially appreciated. You may share your information with us at piahs165@gmail.com or through the website.

Having a Class Reunion?

We invite you to include the History Center when planning a class reunion. We have had good reviews by former graduates who have gathered with their classmates at the History Center and spent time reminiscing about the “good old days.” Please call the Director at 507-398-5326 to discuss options available.
