The world’s largest continuous town square is in Centerville
Monday, June 15, 2015
Do you like driving but aren’t so keen on stop signs or lights? Centerville, Iowa, has an attraction that’s just for you.
Take a leisurely drive around Centerville’s historic Town Square. It is the largest continuous town square in the world, earning that designation because there are no stoplights or stop signs in the Square.
In the center of the Square, you’ll find the historic Appanoose County Courthouse, which was dedicated in 1904. The entire Square, including the business buildings facing it, is on the National Register of Historic Places because of its importance in the development of Centerville as the county seat. The district includes 119 buildings.
