Sitting at the confluence of the Obey and Cumberland Rivers, Celina was once an important riverboat stopover for the timber industry. The town was named for the daughter of Moses Fisk, one of the founders of the county and a pioneer of education. The rivers that helped to build the town also periodically devastated it with floods; in the 1940s, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dammed the Obey to create nearby Dale Hollow Lake.
