Centreville Settlement Historical Society
Note: We are making plans for using this website primarily for our 'business' and 'historical records usage', and shifting to a new domain at www.centrevillesettlement.org for Outreach, Member Information, social media hub, calendar, and current event photos/videos. Please watch for that implementation in the next few months. Because of those changes some information and links in this site may become inactive. If you're looking for things that used to be here but are now gone, check out the new site: www.centrevillesettlement.org. Watch too for a possible new mobile app at www.m.centrevillesettlement.org !

In the 1840's, many people from the Saxon state of Germany and others from surrounding European areas settled in what is known today as the Town of Centerville, Wisconsin, USA.
They were attracted to the land of rich resources and the similarity to the homeland they left behind.
This heritage remains strong in the Centerville community today, reflected by it's people, landscapes, and buildings.
Who and Where We Are
