Pikeville is a ghost town in Marion County in the U.S. state of Alabama.
Pikeville served as the first permanent county seat of Marion County from 1820-1882. It was incorporated as a town on January 12, 1827. The county courthouse was destroyed by fire in 1866, and was later rebuilt. John Dabney Terrell, Jr. served as Probate Judge for Marion County for over forty years. He and his family resided in Pikeville, until its demise.
A post office operated under the name Pikeville from 1824 to 1907.
It is now a ghost town. However, the courthouse still stands along with the city cemetery, a civil war cemetery, a grave of an unknown War of 1812 soldier and remnants of General Jackson’s Military Road.
