Pineville, NC is probably best known for being the birthplace of the 11th U.S. President, James K. Polk. A historical site remains in his name, an original cabin from the land he was born on remains and the rest of the home has been recreated, including representative furniture and people in costume.
The town grew into what it is because of the various interstates built to run through it. This provides the unique blend of small town size (just over 5 miles of town!) and business development, but it isn't the best situation for natural walkability and bikeability.
