Centerville history:

Here is a history page for Centerville.

Though the town was settled in the mid 1800's, the early residents, Dakota Indians, were here over 100 years before. The first house was built in 1850 by F.W.Traves. This excerpt on how the town was named is from the above history page: "In 1854, settlers Peltier, LaValle, and LaMotte laid out and platted the town. They chose the name Centerville because of its central location from St. Paul, Stillwater, and Anoka. The city was officially established on August 11, 1857, when Minnesota was still a territory."
