Pineda is a former village in Brevard County, Florida, United States.

History[edit]

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 Boulevard. One early land speculator in Pineda was John Aspinwall, who gave his name to today's Aspinwall Street. Many large landowners 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 four 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.
