History & History Related Items

Sterling history:

The town of Sterling was settled in 1881, but before that it was known as Pettyville. It was named for the leader of the group of settlers that came in 1873. His name was George Petty. They laid out their new community along the Sanpitch River. A number of cabins were built in the area along with a school and a cemetery. In 1881, the area was surveyed by James C. Snow for the new town of Sterling. Any remaining residents of Pettyville gradually moved into Sterling.

When the railroad came around 1885, more contact with other areas became possible. Mail came twice a day and was picked up near the Gunnison Reservoir and taken into Sterling to be delivered.
