The Roloffs (from Little People, Big World) lived near me when I lived in Hillsboro, Oregon (born and raised there till I was 17). Their kids are younger than me and went to a tiny private school, but they would have gone to my public high school if they'd gone public.

Rowdy Roddy Piper (famous wrestler from way back) also lived in the area and I went to high school with one of his daughters.

Lisa Gardner (famous thriller/murder mystery author) is also from Hillsboro. She graduated from the same high school my brother went to years later.

There's various other politicians/athletes/etc from Hillsboro, which is a town just outside of Portland. If I looked at Portland there's a ton more

Ah, Gainesville

I like to go see Sister Hazel at Epcot when they come for the Food and Wine Festival. They remind me so much of high school...

okay, so not MY town exactly, but a town very close to here, that I went to college in and which I shop in, Mark twain was from there, tommy hilfiger (sp) and Brian Williams (news anchor guy), Ernie Davis, Eileen Collins (first woman in space)..

Another town very close to here, my dad works there, and I've had two jobs there as well--the house from the "munsters" is there..the "original" that they used in the intros... haha, there are a few famous people that reside there right now, like whoopie goldberg has a house there and has been seen in the local "wegmans (which is where my dad works)" As well as Carl Sagan (well known atheist author), Bill nye the science guy went to cornell university and I actually saw him when I worked at wegmans.

I grew up in Charlotte, NC so there are lots of famous people and athletes that have residences there. My sister's good friend from high school is married to a guy in Aerosmith and they live just outside of Charlotte (he is older than her dad). Michael Jordan is from NC but he owns part of our NBA team so he's here a lot. Antwan Jamison, an NBA player went to my high school and played with my BIL. Ric Flair the wrestler lived really close to where I lived but his kids went to private school. Brooklyn Decker and Skeet Ulrich are some actors from here. Oh and a bunch of the NASCAR drivers are here. I currently live in the birthplace of NASCAR.
