In the 1760’s, the Centreville area was referred to as “Newgate”.  In 1792 the town of Centerville was established and later renamed Centreville.  During the Civil War, Centreville served as a supply depot for both the Union and Confederate armies and is famous for being the site of the Centreville Military Railroad, the first railroad ever built for the exclusive use of the military.  Centreville’s location at the intersection of several major roads made it a strategic location and was associated with Colonel John S.
