About Centralia

Centralia is a city in Lewis County, Washington, United States. It is located along Interstate 5 near the midpoint between Seattle and Portland, Oregon. Known for its public art, Centralia keeps its historic roots throughout the city. The history of Centralia begins with an African-American couple in the 1850s who feared that they would be forced into slavery, so instead they fled to Centralia. Founded as a railroad town, Centralia's economy was originally dependent on such extractive industries as coal, lumber and agriculture. At one time, five railroad lines crossed in Centralia, but today Centralia is known for its diversity and recreational outdoor activities. With parks, shops, and a mild nightlife, many families and retirees are attracted to Centralia for its slower pace of life.
