Established in 1912, the municipality of Pike River is mainly known for its agricultural community and dairy farms, as well as a large number of Swiss, Belgian and Polish immigrants. The Pike River runs through the village. The municipality has three impressive institutional buildings: the church (1907), which is a landmark in the surrounding countryside because of its imposing structure and striking colour; the former school (1923) that is now home to the town hall and rectory. The town is named in part in memory of an Italian Dominican monk, Pierre of Verona (circa 1205-1252). The English name for this town, Pike River, is a translation of the name of the river, known in French as Rivière aux Brochets.
