The City of Celina was organized in the fall of 1879. At that time the community was
located approximately 1 mile south of present day Celina and the area is generally
referred to as Old Celina. With the coming of the railroad the residents chose to move to
the present location and the rest is history.
Celina Area Heritage Association was organized in 1999. The goal of our group is to
preserve the rich heritage that the original settlers and succeeding generations have
passed down. Celina residents have a unique history. It is indeed worthy of
Celina Area Heritage Association is a 501C3 organization and any donations(cash or

community, respect for our founders, and for the
purpose of educating current and future generations,
will research and preserve our rich heritage and
document the continuing present.
