The Daytripper Comes to Centerville

Chet Garner and team explore the area and highlight some local businesses.

At the center of our solar system is the sun, at the center of a kolache is the fruit, and at the center of yourself you find the zen, I think. Point is, the good stuff lies at the center, anyone who’s eaten a tootsie pop knows that, and Texas is no different. Welcome to Centerville.

The Daytripper

In the heart of Leon County and its county seat lies Centerville, Texas. While many have believed the name comes from being equidistant to Houston and Dallas, it’s actually named because it is in the center of the county. It’s also equidistant to Huntsville and Fairfield.

No matter the direction from whence you come, Centerville is a great place to stop. We are pleased to have welcomed The Daytripper, Chet Garner, to the Deerest Town in Texas.

Featured in this episode are: Woody’s Smokehouse, Leon County Courthouse, Jail (maintained by the Texas Historical Commission), Fort Boggy State Park, Huebner Berry Patch, Leona General Store, Leona Drug Store Old Time Soda Fountain.
