" Two miles Northeast of here is the site of old Center Village, or Centerville, settled about 1800 and for many years an important trading center. To this village came the inhabitants of Ware, Pierce, Clinch, Coffee and Appling counties, bringing staple cotton, beeswax, honey, jerked venison, hides, furs, etc. to exchange for flour, sugar, coffee, shot, powder and other commodities they did not produce.

A regular stop for stage coaches traveling the Kings Road, old Center Village went out of existence after the coming of the railroad."
