Newville is located at the corner of Hines and Pole Run Roads. Surrounding main roads include Old Town Road, Lebanon Road, and State Route 10.
The crossroads is cornered by a general store called Newville Country Store. There are two churches in the area: Lebanon Baptist Church and Newville United Methodist Church. Lebanon Baptist Church is located at the corner of Hines Road and Lebanon Road and is attended predominantly by members of African-American descent. Newville United Methodist Church is located on Hines Road just north of the Hines and Pole Run intersection, and is a predominantly Caucasian church. Several old homes in the Newville Area date back to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
Until the late 1990s the area was totally rural. However, due to a recent demand for housing in Prince George County as a result of expansions at Fort Lee, and other businesses in Richmond-Petersburg region, several farms have been sold to developers to create 5-acre (20,000 m2) homesites. Thousands of acres of land in the Newville area are owned by lumber companies and managed for loblolly pine timber and pulpwood.
