"Old Fire Hall" just off the Town Square in Centerville
The Board of Mayor & Aldermen passed a resolution during their Tuesday, Oct. 13th meeting to sell the Old Fire Hall located on Hwy 100 (Linden Hwy) just off the Courthouse Square in Centerville.  Great Corner Location!
The Board authorized Hudgins Auctions to sell via Online Auction this exciting property.  Bidding is now active with the opening bid at $10,000.  The bidding will end on Tuesday, Nov. 10th at 6pm.

The property features a building of approximately 6,310 square feet (combination steel and framed with brick facade on a corner lot measured at 0.26 acre.  The building was most recently used as the Town of Centerville Fire Hall; the town just completed its brand new fire hall and no longer needs this property.
Prior to the property being used as the Town of Centerville Fire Hall, this was the site of the Town of Centerville City Hall - the offices of the town's municipal government.
Originally, this building was constructed (after WWII) as a Dodge Dealership!  Dodge Dealer owned by Arch Bratton.

The subject property consists of a 0.26 acre corner lot located at Briggs Street & Hwy 100 in Centerville, TN (on Hwy 100). The improvement on the lot is a 6,310 square foot building (steel shell with a wood-framed shell in the front)
The land is improved with a steel building of 4,060 square feet (70’ x 58’ - inside measurements) and front office of 1,650 square feet (55’ x 30’ - outside measurements). There is also a side addition / bay (40’ x 15’ - inside measurements). The building has been used as a fire hall & maintenance building for the Town of Centerville. The front portion of the building is in much repair; the steel structure of the building is actually still dry and continues to be used for storage.

Just drive around the square in Centerville and you will note MANY of the old buildings around the square undergoing remodeling and improvements!  Thanks in part to a "matching funds grant" in the past, property owners have been improving the facades of these historic and older buildings around the Town Square.
