The 1953 yearbook for Pineville Consolidated School that once operated in Hamblen County, Tennessee.

The school was consolidated from the one room schools of Golda, Lowland and Pineville in 1939. In 1946, students from Russellville school were added and a year later, the Black students from Whitesburg.

Providing education for grades 1 - 8, Pineville acted as a feeder school for Morristown College High School. The school would close in 1954 with the building of the new Miller Boyd School nearby.
