About Centreville, VA
History of Centreville
Centreville became established in 1792. It got its name due to its central location between the then-more established towns of Alexandria, Colchester, Dumfries, Middleburg, Georgetown, Warrenton, and Leesburg.
With several Civil War battles fought nearby, both Union and Confederate troops occupied the town at various times throughout the war. You can learn more about that history at the Stuart Mosby Civil War Cavalry Museum. While you’re there, pick up a map of a walking tour of the Centreville Historic District!
