Welcome to the Village of Centerburg, Ohio

Our Village

Platted in 1834 by Stephen Sutton and Jacob Houck, Centerburg is located just 14 miles Southwest of MountVernon. 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 home owners 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

Proposed Parking Changes


The proposed changes came through the village safety committee, but several were recommended by the village residents.  There are five changes:

•  Eliminate parking on the west side of South Hartford Street from Church Street south to the end of the existing curb area.

•  Eliminate the handicap parking spot at the corner of Willis Street and W. Main Street and to further eliminate all parking in said location so the line of sight from Willis Street entering onto W. Main Street is not obscured.

•  Establish a handicap parking spot on the east side of South Hartford Street at the intersection of W. Main Street beside the bank building.

•  Establish a handicap parking spot on S. Clayton Street near the intersection of W. Main Street by the Library.

•  Add language to the stop light located at Preston Street and Main Street to include “no turn on red” during school hours.
