Centerville is such a safe, fun, and beautiful environment to live in. It is very safe because we have many police departments to help with everyone’s needs. They are always ready to help save someone without a doubt. Centerville is also very fun and unique because we have Main Street, which has a lot of shopping and food. When you first arrive into Centerville you feel like you have arrived at home which is always nice. Centerville is also kept very clean and it is not considered a dirty place. I guarantee if you are looking for somewhere to live where your kids can grow up with a safe childhood, Centerville is the place for you.

Great location for raising children. Plenty of businesses to shop at and places to eat. The real estate market is competitive, so be prepared to jump on any house/apartment that you are interested in. The schools are above average. They have a great Fourth of July celebration that you HAVE to attend.
Centerville, Ohio is a beautiful town with an old classic feel. It is safe for people of all ages and offers monthly downtown walks. These walks have artwork, sales, and events! The holiday season is beautiful with trees laced with solar-powered lights. I have always felt welcomed in Centerville, Ohio.
