Sterling, founded in 1881, is located in the South Platte River Valley. The area boomed during the years the Overland Trail was heavily traveled (1858-1869) but later many communities became ghost towns. Ruins and old foundations still exist throughout this area (these can best be seen along county roads and in fields).
