Welcome to the Village of Centerburg, Ohio
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

Please be informed that the Village of Centerburg, in conjunction with K.E. McCartney Engineering, will be testing the sanitary sewer lines during the days of October 14 and 15. This testing will be conducted by injecting smoke into the sanitary sewers from the Village's mainline sewer. The smoke is a non-toxic substance that is harmless to humans, pets, food and material goods. The purpose of this test is to determine locations where storm water is entering the sanitary sewer system.
The smoke may be seen coming from roof vents, downspouts, building foundations, or manhole covers. If your house is properly connected to the sanitary sewer, the chance of smoke entering your house is unlikely.
To minimize the likelihood of smoke entering your house, please run water through all of your floor drains and sinks to ensure that there is water in all plumbing traps. Locations where smoke is entering your house should be noted and repaired as soon as possible because this indicates locations where sewer gases are likely entering your home.
If smoke is seen inside of your home, simply open the windows until it clears. The smoke is harmless but may temporarily be irritating to nasal passages. If irritation is noticed, you should leave the premises until it clears. If you have any questions, please call the Village Administrator at 740-625-6075 ext. 2.
