January 8, 1875 Black Man Founds the City of Centerville. Virginian George Washington, having traveled cross country in the company of foster parents and settled in Washington Territory a quarter of a century earlier, founded the city of Centerville. Washington, a successful businessman, was revered because of his willingness to help his neighbors. He is often called the A.P. Gianini of the Pacific Northwest.
