The first meeting of the Pine Divisional Board was held at the Albany Creek residence of Henry Thomas Ireland on 7 March 1888. Mr Ireland was unanimously elected as Chairman for the ensuing year. The Board held it first meetings in rented premises at Bald Hills until the following year when a meeting hall and office building, now known as the 'Old Shire Hall', was constructed in Strathpine.
In 1985, the building was faithfully restored to replicate its original condition. The Shire Hall has acted as a focus for community activities for most of its life and it remains an important landmark on what was originally the main highway north from Brisbane, and is now the main street of Strathpine.
