Centerville is a small and safe town for families. It is known for its antiques but has activities for all ages. There is affordable housing located in the middle of the town. Some activities within walking distance include churches, schools, parks, dine in restaurants, and antique shops. Most families who live here have a family oriented mindset. A downfall of Centerville is that there aren't many high paying job opportunities. However, higher paying jobs are nearby in surrounding cities.

Centerville has been my hometown my entire life and I would never want it any other way. Centerville is just small enough where you feel like you know everybody and they are all within a reasonable distance from one another, but also it is just large enough where you barely see anybody you know twice. Centerville schools are extremely affordable and provide a great education to its students. Also, the athletics in the school are successful which provides a great time for everyone to enjoy. The best part about Centerville, though, is almost everyone you meet will have a smile on their face and will be friendly to you.
Small, quaint, quite, lovely neighborhood. Comes together nicely for chrismtas in Centerville. Absolutely no complaints.
