The City of Centerville was founded in 1796, but it wasn’t until 1968 that the village of Centerville met the State of Ohio threshold of 5,000 electors to earn city status. Now, 50 years later, Centerville is home to nearly 24,000 residents. City status is certainly a reason to celebrate! Join city residents throughout 2018 as the City commemorates its 50th year of incorporation - Gold and Cheerful Centerville! Enjoy special community events throughout the year including an anniversary party and concert, fall festival and a bigger tree lighting ceremony on December 2 - to celebrate the City’s actual birthdate.
