Bald Hill is the hub of Centerville. Major roads leading to the base of the hill bring together social, business and residential areas; it was this geographical and social nexus that gave this Beverly neighborhood its name. In the late 17th century, Bald Hill had little growth covering its rocky prominence, hence its name. Today, a mix of pine and hemlock cover the site rendering its name inaccurate.
