History in Centreville

The area was established in 1792 but Centreville really came into its own during the Civil War. Centreville’s proximity to important roads helped the area play an important role during the War.

Mosby and his rangers used Centreville’s landscape as their base of operations, which eventually gave rise to Mosby’s Confederacy.
