CENTER MILLS, TEXAS. Center Mills was a farming community near the headwaters of Long Creek in north central Johnson County. The settlement, named for its location equidistant from Fort Worth, Cleburne, and Weatherford, developed sometime before 1866. Its existence, however, was short; there is no evidence that the settlement survived into the 1870s.
