Pineola was named by Henriette Bassett. She came to Georgia from Paris, France, in 1919, having married a Georgia man, Captain Ralph Bassett. She had gone to boarding school in England as a young girl and then returned to teach French in an English school. She named the farm Pineola for the Long Leaf Pines in the front yard.
