Centerville History Project

The activities that the students engaged in to obtain the information on these pages were:

  • Pictures and information from the Anoka County Historical Society were shared by Mrs. Capra.
  • Students interviewed citizens to find out what it was like to live in Centerville when they were children.
  • Students visited the St. Genevieve Cemetery and recorded information found there. They then returned to school and organized and shared the information.
  • Students took a walking tour of Centerville. All the recent photographs on these web pages were taken by the students with a digital camera. During the tour, they discussed what they had learned from the Historical Society and learned more from one of the citizens of Centerville that works at our school.
