This was the name given to the present Centerville Lane on the 22nd day of October 1894 when it was declared a public road by order of the county commissioners. Opening of the road was made contingent on the willingness of ranchers along the section line to donate sufficient land for a right of way. The Brockliss Estate, near Sheridan, through which the western end passed, was the original Brockliss homestead taken up in 1860.

Centerville, comprising a bar opened by Chris Berning in 1902 and a blacksmith shop opened by John C. Rieman in 1903 and sold to Parks Brothers who moved here from Sheridan in 1901, marked the eastern end of Brockliss Road.
