Pineville is a city in and the county seat of McDonald County, Missouri, United States. The population was 791 at the 2010 census.

History

Pineville was originally named Marysville, and under the latter name was laid out in 1847. A post office called Pineville has been in operation since 1849. Some say the community was named for a grove of pine trees at the original town site, while others believe the name is a transfer from Pineville, Kentucky.

On August 17, 1897, Pineville was the site of a bank robbery which was one of the few at that time that involved a woman as an active participant in the actual robbery. Cora Hubbard, who was 20 at the time, John Sheets, a 23-year-old from Missouri, and 31-year-old Albert Whitfield “Whit” Tennison robbed the Mcdonald County Bank stealing a total of $589.23 (the equivalent of $15,700 in 2009 on the Consumer Price Index scale). All three were soon captured and imprisoned.

The county's historic Old McDonald County Courthouse, which is operated as a museum by the McDonald County Historical Society, was named to the National Register of Historic Places on May 1, 2012.
