Neuville is a village on the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River, just west of Quebec City, part of the Portneuf Regional County Municipality, Quebec, Canada. It was founded in 1684, and has remained quite picturesque throughout these years.

The 19th-century artist, Antoine Plamondon, (ca. 1804-1895) moved here by 1850, with his mother, a brother and sister. He lived the rest of his life here, more than 40 years.

Neuville has an excellent marina for pleasure sailboats and yachts.

In 1653, the area was granted as a seignory by Jean de Lauson to Jean Bourdon de Saint-Jean (ca. 1601-1668) for his son Jean-François Bourdon de Dombourg (1647–1690), who was an engineer, surveyor, cartographer, and Attorney General to the sovereign. In 1680, the Dombourg Seignory was acquired by Nicolas Dupont de Neuville (1632–1716), whereafter the seignory was known as Neuville.[1]

In 1679, the Saint-François-de-Sales Parish was formed; it became a civil parish in 1684. The place was also called Pointe-aux-Trembles (or Pointe-au-Tremble), in reference to the point on which the church was built, which once was covered with aspen and birch.[1]

The Battle of Neuville was fought nearby on the Saint Lawrence forcing the French under Chevalier de Levis to end their Siege of Quebec in 1760.

In 1850, the post office opened, identified as Pointe-aux-Trembles. In 1855, the place was incorporated as a Parish Municipality of Saint-François-de-Sales, but renamed to Pointe-aux-Trembles some time after. In 1919, part of its territory separated to form the Village Municipality of Neuville.[1]

On December 18, 1996, the Village Municipality of Neuville and the Parish Municipality of Pointe-aux-Trembles merged again to form the new City of Neuville.[1]
