Welcome!

The Pine Island Area Historical Society was organized in 1998.  Located at 314 North Main in Pine Island, MN, the historical society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible.

History Center Hours

The Pine Island Area History Center is open to the public the first Sunday of the month from 1:00 – 3:30; and every Monday morning from 8:00-11:00 AM. If these times are not convenient for you, please call 507-398-5326 to schedule an appointment. You may also contact us through this website or by leaving a message at 507-356-2802.

If a holiday falls on the first Sunday or any Monday, we suggest you check
to see if the Center will be open before you plan to visit.

JANUARY AND FEBRUARY HOURS:   We are open by appointment only during these two months. This is a time for renovation and maintenance work at the Center as well as time off for our volunteers. We will begin regular hours on the first Monday in March.  Please do not leave a message at 507-356-2802 as the recorder will not be in use during 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.
