Centerville, North CarolinaPhotos, maps and news from Centerville, North Carolina.Updated August 16, 2018.

Centerville is a census-designated place (CDP) in the rural northeastern corner of Franklin County, North Carolina, United States. The population was 89 at the 2010 census, a loss of 10 persons from the previous count of 99 at the 2000 census. It was an incorporated town from 1965 to 2017.There is no post office in Centerville, and thus no zip code; it simply uses that of Louisburg, which is located 12 miles (19 km) west. Centerville is centered on "the crossroads", which is the intersection of NC-561 and NC-58, and consists of two small old-fashioned country stores, one each on two of that intersection's four corners. Two sell gasoline (Arnold's and The Country Store), and one of those also sells diesel and kerosene (The Country Store). All two sell basic general store items, such as toilet paper, soap, household cleaning products, canned and boxed food, etc., as well as common convenience store items such as sodas, snack foods, cigarettes, beer, etc. There's also a Dollar General, a muffler shop and a medical clinic. Centerville has its own church (Centerville Baptist Church, a member of the Southern Baptist Convention), and volunteer fire department. There is no police department, so Centerville—like the surrounding unincorporated area—is patrolled by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office. As is common in the rural stretches of eastern North Carolina, many of the houses in and around Centerville are quite old and in poor states of repair, and agriculture is the main use of land. Tobacco, soybeans, corn, and hay are the main crops. Centerville includes many antique buildings from its heyday, including the now-defunct Serepta Church, a former Methodist church located at the intersection of NC-561 and Centerville-Laurel Mill Road. Perry School and Vine Hill are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
