Platted in 1834 by Stephen Sutton and Jacob Houck, Centerburg is located just 14 miles Southwest of Mount Vernon. Centerburg's claim to fame is that it is the geographical center of Ohio. As you enter the village, you are welcomed to the "Heart of Ohio." Centerburg took its name as a midway tavern site at the crossroads of an early stage line between Columbus and Mount Vernon and was a way station for wagons and their 6- horse teams carrying merchandise between the Ohio River and Great Lakes. The railroad created substantial community growth. Centerburg continues to grow as it is merely a 40-minute commute to Columbus allowing homeowners to work in the city but live in a close-knit community where the air is fresh and neighbors are friendly.
The Heart of Ohio USA Days Festival is held near the end of June and features wholesome family fun, including a parade, entertainment from local and national bands, and fireworks. There are also amusement rides and food concessions.
In September, the community will host its annual Oldtime Farming Festival. Memorial Park is transformed into an event that educates visitors on the history of farming and its importance to the Central Ohio area. The festival also includes cakewalks and a pie auction.
