While sharing many of the memories we all associate with the Alexandria area, Pineville has a wealth of history of its own.

Pineville's history dates back 275 years, and the city has retained many historic buildings dating to the late 1800s.
It is also the site of several significant and historic cemeteries some of which date to the 1700s.
