Centreville is the county seat of Saint Joseph County. It was named because of itís 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.

This is also the starting point for visitors who come to see the Langley Covered Bridge, erected in 1887 in honor of the town father. The Bridge can be found 3 miles north of town on Co. Road 133.
