    For the first six years of my life I lived in Century. Even though I was very young I have childhood memories forever etched into my memory, so Century will always be home to me. I enjoy coming home from time to time. The old house where I lived was moved to Pensacola, and Century Motors is in it’s place, but the earth where I ran and played still remains. I am so glad to see that many of the old landmark homes still adorn the roadside, for they have always spoken of the old times in the heyday of timber and the sawmill.
