Centerville, also known as the “City of Ethics,” was founded in 1958. Centerville is located in the north and northwest area in Houston County, and it offers a unique blend of amenities for families and individuals of all ages. Centerville is the smallest incorporated city in Houston County, and the 2010 Census showed a residence of 7,000+ residents. That almost doubled since 2000, and will likely continue growing along with the greater Central Georgia area, specifically Houston County. Centerville is the city where you’ll find the Center Park, one of Houston County’s newest and most fun parks. It features state of the art playground equipment along with a splash pad for warm months.
Centerville is well known for their lighted holiday parade in December. Every year, they deck out the emergency vehicles and floats with festive holiday lights, and is by far my favorite parade. Centerville also houses the newest public library in Houston County.
One very unique aspect of home ownership in Centerville is that any resident above 70 is exempt from paying city taxes, making Centerville a great place for retirement as well. Check out the resources below, and let me know if I can help you tour this sweet area!
