EVIDENCE OF WAR
No - not in Afghanistan - in Centerville! Did you know there was a cannon shot fired when the county seat was moved from Centerville to  Richmond in 1873? Did you know you can still see evidence of this on the front of the current Centerville Library?

Read about why this happened...and how a new jail was involved! A fascinating look into Wayne County history!
