History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The village was incorporated in 1848, setting itself off from the Town of Pike.

In March 2008, voters in the village agreed to dissolve the village and become an unincorporated community, or hamlet, in the Town of Pike. The reason for the disincorporation was the loss of both population and industry.

The First Free Will Baptist Church of Pike was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.
