Our Community
Located in scenic Southwest Washington, Centralia's  16,300 residents enjoy the beauty and activities offered by the great outdoors. Skiing, mountain climbing, hiking, fishing, boating, and ocean beaches are all within a 100-mile radius of Centralia. In addition, our location almost exactly between Seattle and Portland gives residents easy access to all that both metropolitan areas have to offer.
