The City of Pineville, Missouri, is located in extreme Southwest corner of Missouri at the junction of ‘Three Rivers’. The Little Sugar Creek and Big Sugar Creek merge and form the Elk River. Pineville sees thousands of tourists each week who visit our many public river access points and campgrounds.

This growing community is just seven miles north of the Arkansas state line. Population projections estimate Pineville has tremendous growth potential in the immediate future because the urban sprawl from northwest Arkansas continues to move north at a rapid pace. Pineville leadership is working diligently to promote and provide opportunities for business growth.

Pineville, Missouri is also the County Seat for McDonald County, Missouri, and the “Tourist Welcome Center” in the “New City Hall” right off the square.

Fall Festival…

Jesse James Days

A picture of the filming of the Jesse James Movie

The 1938 film of Jesse James was filmed in and around Pineville, Mo. The courthouse square in Pineville, a paved thoroughfare, is covered with 400 truck loads of dirt and every tract of modern civilization has been removed from business buildings to turn back seventy years of time to provide the proper James gang setting. There were many people from the area that were hired for “Extras”. Every year to celebrate the movie being made here we have Jesse James Days, which consists of a nightly Carnival, Arts and craft booths set up around the old Square, a cook shack, a Frisbee throw nightly for the kids (which will have prizes attached to them), a Parade, a B-B-Q Chicken Dinner, a Bank Robbery, nightly Music, and many, many more events that are too numerous to mention. The money that is raised goes to the Fire Department to operate on for the next year. This event takes place in August each year,  for more information please feel free to contact City Hall.  The event this year is August 18th-21st.
