Notable people

Publicity and media

Centerburg is also the name for Robert McCloskey's fictional hero Homer Price's hometown, but there appear to be few similarities between the actual town and McCloskey's storied version.

Centerburg was featured in part in the documentary ...So Goes the Nation, representing rural Ohio (and in turn rural America) during the 2004 presidential election.
