A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
So far, we have found very little information about Sterling. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>
We've added Sterling to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Sterling - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Sterling, please Contact Us.
