Centralia

Welcome to Centralia, the population center and cultural soul of Lewis County!

Make your way downtown to shop at a vast selection of locally-owned retail shops offering everything from antiques to books. Stay awhile in the newly-renovated Centralia Square Hotel or Olympic Club Hotel in downtown Centralia, and grab a drink at a venue that once defied Prohibition.

Historic sites in town are plenty and beg to be explored. Fort Borst was home to early settlers in the region, and the park that contains it also is home to the Borst Home, an integral part of our region’s history. The downtown corridor of Tower Avenue is included on the National Register of Historic Places for its importance in the city's formation.

While Centralia prides itself on its history, it is also becoming a center of innovation: the Hub City’s newest offering, the Northwest Sports Hub, has already brought thousands of people from near and far for sports tournaments and other events in the brand-new complex near Fort Borst Park. And on the economic front, the Industrial Park at TransAlta aims to transform a former coal mining center into a major economic center for large-scale industry, bringing jobs and growth to the area.

The Centralia Factory Outlets, visible from Interstate 5 and accessible within just a couple minutes from the freeway, offer a shopping experience paralleled only by visits to cities much larger in size.

There’s plenty to do, see, eat and drink in Centralia, so take some time and plan your stay…just make sure you experience it all! Check out the city's website for comprehensive information about Centralia!

How to get there: Centralia straddles both sides of Interstate 5 in northern Lewis County, and as such is easily accessible from Exits 81 and 82.
