What I want to do: Record the history from 1866 when the first people were recorded in Centerville through the present.
My attempt and results: The plat for the town of Centerville was laid out in 1881, the same year that Silver Bow County was established. I found that Centerville had 3 three different Hotels, several grocery stores, dozens of bars/saloons, three churches, three schools and dozens of businesses.
Questions and next steps: Looking for pictures and advertisements of Centerville.
Why I'm interested: The history of the 3 towns in the suburbs of Butte- Walkerville, Meaderville and Centerville should be fully recorded as well as all the neighborhoods. It is only then that the full history of Silver Bow County will be complete.
