History Center Hours

The Pine Island Area History Center will be open by appointment only during the months of January and/or February.  If possible, please schedule your visit a few days ahead of the time you want to visit.  To make an appointment, please contact the Director at 507-398-5326 or via the website.  The answering machine will not be monitored at this time.

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.

New Auditorium Opening Gala

On Sunday, September 25, 2016, the new auditorium/performing arts center of the Pine Island High School was officially opened with a Gala featuring high school musicians and over 100 alumni of the music department.
