Welcome to the Town of Center!

The Town of Center is located in Outagamie County, Wisconsin, north of the city of Appleton.  The town enjoys a blend of family farming operations, rural residential development and two local community focal points - Mackville and Center Valley.

In 2010, the Center Valley Grade School built in 1887 was enrolled in the State and National Registers of Historic Places.  The one-room schoolhouse has been renovated to look as it did in the 1940s.  The school is open for scheduled tours by the "Friends of Center Valley Grade School" by calling 920-734-5073.
