Anoka County

CENTERVILLE, settled in 1850-52, was organized in 1857 and incorporated on September 27, 1910. Its village of this name, thence given to the township, was platted in the spring of 1854, having a central situation between the Mississippi and St. Croix Rivers. The settlers in the village and vicinity were mostly French, and this came to be known as the French settlement, while numerous German settlers in the western part of the township caused that to be called the German settlement. The post office was named Columbus, 1856-63, and then Centreville, 1863-93, before its current spelling, and was discontinued in 1905. The first sawmill in the county was built here in 1854 by Charles Peltier. In 1971 a number of streets were renamed to reflect its history; see also COLUMBUS Township.
