Vibrant and Historic

A part of the Dayton metro area, Centerville is an upscale suburban community that’s located in both Montgomery County and Greene County. A significant portion of Centerville’s just over 10-square-mile area is within Washington Township, which is why the two communities are often referred to as a single unit.

Surrounded by beautiful scenery, this vibrant community beats to the pulse of modern metropolitan living while still staying in touch with its rich history and agricultural heritage. The past is still very much palpable here, particularly in the historic districts. Moreover, there are exciting events to be enjoyed all year round, a variety of shopping centers, and extensive parks and world-class golfing destinations to enjoy. You’ll find the award-winning The Golf Club at Yankee Trace [link:] here, which has consistently been voted the top golf course in the greater Dayton area since 1995.

Centerville is famous for its wealth of historic homes and buildings. Ohio’s largest concentration of early stone houses can be found here and the community takes pains to ensure their preservation. These have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places as have many of the turn-of-the-century buildings in the downtown area.

The area has also been seeing a great deal of new development and prospective buyers have plenty of homes and neighborhoods to choose from here.
