Centreville is the county seat of Queen Anne’s County. In 1782 the county authorized the county seat to be moved from Queenstown to a more central location thus giving the town its name of Centre Ville which was later changed to Centreville. Today Centreville is the largest town in Queen Anne’s County. Many of the original streets and buildings remain to this day and the historic part of the town boasts diverse architecture including elegant Victorian homes. There are many stores, restaurants and activities for your every convenience while still maintaining Centreville’s small town charm.
