Celina History

The area now known as Celina was originally a swampy and wooded land. It was first settled in 1834. It derived its name from Salina, Ohio. However, the spelling was deliberately changed to avoid confusion. Oil and natural gas deposits were discovered in Celina around the 1880s. Soon after that, the population of Celina increased remarkably. Though it was a farming community in its initial years, a number of manufacturing establishments flourished in Celina during the 20th century.
