History & History Related Items

This area was a well known junction of two Indian Trails. Later, in the mid-1700s, several families moved here and built homes. As the first cabin was built at the junction, the spot became known as the Turnout.

Ancestors of James K. Polk, our nation's 11th President, were among these first settlers. As more people came, so did more business, along with a stagecoach line. The Morrow family arrived and built their new home which became known as Morrows Turnout. In the mid-1800s, the Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Railway was opened and a nice station was built at Morrows Turnout. Because of all the large pine trees in this area, the new sign for the depot stated Pineville. Pineville was incorporated in 1873
