You may be asking yourself, "Why is Newberry, South Carolina, the center of the universe?" Ask any local and they will be the first to tell you that it seems like nearly anywhere we go a Newberrian is likely to meet someone who has a relative, friend, or colleague in Newberry, or has been there themselves. Many people say there are six degrees of separation that connect all people to Newberry. Thus the saying "Newberry is the Center of the Universe," was born.
The slogan "Newberry, The Center of the Universe," is said to have been coined on our local radio station, WKDK's, morning Coffee Hour program.
