The current village of Centennial, Colorado is not in the location ascribed to it by James Michener. His Centennial was located at the confluence of the South Platte and Cache La Pouder Rivers in rural Weld County, approximately seventy-five miles northeast of Denver, and is undeveloped land. The current Centennial was incorporated in 2001, and is located about fifteen miles south of Denver in Arapahoe County, and is a highly developed suburb of Denver.
