Pike was incorporated as a village in 1848.

Abner Abams was a shoemaker who came to Pike in 1815.  He obtained permission to lay pump logs in Pike Village in 1817.

The village of Pike constructed a water system in 1910. Residents of the village voted to dissolve in 2007, and the Town of Pike Water District was formed to assume ownership of the village water system.

Water is provided by the Town of Pike Water District.
