The town of Centerville was established in 1857, and was named for its location in relation to the Mississippi River, the St. Croix River and St. Paul. The area was once inhabited by the Dakota in the 17th and 18th centuries and many unrecorded Native Americans before them, as evidenced by the mounds that can still be observed on Mound Trail. In the 1940’s, archaeologist Harold Kohlepp located over 1000 artifacts, including tools, arrowheads and pottery that are still kept in Centerville! Centerville real estate is surrounded by roads that are reminiscent of the town’s history, including Mill Road, which was named for Charles Peltier’s sawmill that he built on Clearwater Creek, or Sorel Street, christened because many of the first settlers here were born in Sorel, Canada.
