Leon County's Canopy Roads Icon


Old Centerville Road

Old Centerville Road dates back to the early nineteenth century, shortly after the founding of  Tallahassee and Thomasville, Georgia. The six mile long wagon road was part of another north-south route linking the antebellum plantations to the Tallahassee market and rail lines to St. Marks. Along Centerville Road, south of Old Centerville Road is the small community of Centreville in Leon County. While Centreville and the neighboring hamlet of Sunny Hill have long since disappeared, the unpaved section of Old Centerville Road still retains it's historical character. Along the 
shaded canopy road, scattered former tenant dwellings peek out. Their forest green painted siding is dusted with clouds of red clay stirred up by passing motorists.
