Centreville is the county seat of Saint Joseph County. It was named because of it’s location in the exact center of the county, (presently at the junction of M-86 and County Road 133).
Thomas W. Langley was the first settler here, arriving in 1831, building a tavern. That same year, the town was organized as the county seat. It later incorporated as a village in 1837. Today, the stately Victorian style courthouse still graces the center square of town, surrounded by small shops and businesses.
