Pineville Community Hospital
Pineville is the county seat of Bell County, Kentucky, and is located on a small strip of land between the Cumberland River and Pine Mountain. One of the oldest settlements in Kentucky, it is located at the crossing of the Cumberland River by the Wilderness Road and was first established as Cumberland Ford in 1781. One of the earliest branches of the Sojourner Truth Woman's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) was formed in Pineville in 1906 with fifteen members. The city is served by Pineville Independent Schools, and Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College maintains a campus in Pineville, serving as the only post-secondary education institution in the city.
