Southerners fleeing the economic and psychological devastation of the Civil War flooded into the West. One group of refugees arrived in Greeley, only to discover the prime farmland was already taken. The settlers found another site along the South Platte River about four miles north of present-day Sterling. The Southern colony at "old Sterling" gave 80 acres of land to the Union Pacific Railroad in return for a right-of-way with shops and a roundhouse. Sterling was named after the Illinois hometown of the railroad surveyor who platted the town site in 1883. Experimental sugar beet farming in the early 1900s proved successful and a sugar mill was built. The sugar beet remains key to the local economy, along with cattle, corn and alfalfa. As you wander around Sterling, you'll inevitably come across the work of local sculptor Bradford Rhea, who creates pieces of art out of dead trees.
