Millersburg, Ohio was indeed a sundown town. I heard it from a reliable source, descendant of KKK. They did have the signs at all roads in and out of town. There are "rumors" of a couple of lynchings back then, too.
Email from 2014:
"I grew up 5 miles west of Millersburg... I have some personal experience below that may help with your research. We were friends with a black family from Wooster, Ohio. Whenever they visited us, they would make sure to leave well before sundown to reach home safely."
