Pineda is a former village in Brevard County, Florida, United States The original settlement was near the FEC track at the west end of Anderson Way (known on some plats as Pineda Park.) Two developers, E.C. and Anna Dearborn arrived in November 1894 and began to survey the area. Their recorded plat, "Plat of the Town of Pineda," showed hundreds of subdivided house lots. The main street, Pineda Avenue, was renamed Suntree Blvd. One early land speculator in Pineda was John Aspinwall. Today Aspinwall Street continues to bears his name. Many large land owners surrounded early Pineda, including the Duda family, Parrot family, Haskins, C.J. Hart, and the Stewart family.[1] The Pineda Causeway, named after this place, carries 4 lanes of State Road 404 1.8 miles (2.9 km) south of the former village. It is located at the intersection of Suntree Boulevard and U.S. Route 1 east of Suntree and the Florida East Coast Railroad. There is a park here.
