Centerville received it's name because of it's a halfway point between Macon, Perry, Byron and Wellston. An old map of the area dates back to 1847 when it was called several other names before people settled on it's current one. Some of the original settlers have ties to the Revolutionary War. A general store on Perry-Macon Road was part of that history. It was owned by Daniel Gunn who received a grant from participating in the war. From its strong American foundation, the city has become a nice place to live with shops, restaurants, festivals and plenty of outdoor fun. The location and amenities make it a great place for families looking at homes for rent.
