Centerville

Soon to no longer be a town - the Franklin County Community of Centerville is located at the intersection of NC 58 and 561. The town was named such for its central proximity to Louisburg, Warrenton, and Littleton. The town of less than 100 was settled in 1882.

The town recently voted to dissolve itself and the North Carolina legislature is soon to approve a bill repealing the town's charter.  The only service the town currently provides are street lights at a cost of $200 per month.  

Once formally dissolved by the state, the town will have 30 days to pay all outstanding bills and sell off its assets.  The Centerville Volunteer Fire Department will be the benefactor of any surplus funds leftover.
