The magnificence and ambiance of the home, coupled with the selection and quality of the merchandise offered, makes The Shoppes at Bradley Hall a truly special experience.

Each year many tourists shop through the halls of Bradley Hall. On many occasions we see familiar faces who have had so much fun on their first visit that they return time & time again.

Completed in 1909, D.C. Bradley's home was built at 519 Drake, along Centerville's "Gold Coast" area. With 10,000 square feet and 22 rooms, depending on how you count them, the Bradley home became the social center of Centerville, complete with a ballroom on the third floor.

The D.C. Bradley residence was featured in the July-August 1921 issue of Country Homes magazine. The article's author described the home's massively built walls, high chimneys, clerestory and hip roof as Dutch Colonial, with definite Japanese influence in the "saucy curl outwards of the roof at the eves," an effect that is "harmonious, both artistically and historically."

Inside, there is an abundance of treasures, such as beautifully stained and leaded glass doors and windows, massively beamed ceilings, mahogany paneled walls, cut-glass-candelabra, mosaic tile and hard wood floors, cedar-lined closets, Corinthian columns. French doors, four fireplaces, and a mahogany-railed grand staircase, frescoed ceilings and built in china and linen closets. Outside stands the carriage house, reminiscent of horse drawn carriages filled with family and friends arriving under the portico. In its day, the home's grounds featured large formal gardens with masses of flowers and shade and ornamental trees. A hothouse, complete with its own stained glass windows, contributed to the upkeep of the grounds.

Customer Testimonials

Fantastic place! A gem of Centerville. Lots of wonderful gifts and a great staff to match! Highly recommended.


Beautiful, just beautiful. What a gorgeous home it must have been in its hay day. I wanted to get tea and just sit on the enormous porch. Every floor is packed with vintage as well as newer items. The Christmas shop upstairs was lovely. The staff were great and very helpful.


This is my absolute favorite place in Centerville. I love all the handmade items, as well as the great thrift items. It's also such a beautiful place that I could spend hours just looking at the architecture and woodwork. If you're going to Centerville, be sure you add this beautiful boutique to your itinerary!


Very cool historic building with great boutique shops around every turn!
