Established 1792

Founded by Hugh Forbes and Enoch Smith, Mt. Sterling was originally called "Little Mountain Town" before being named after the city of Stirling, Scotland. Mt. Sterling is rich in history. Our city was the site of several Civil War skirmishes, one of which resulted in the burning of the courthouse by Confederate forces in 1863. The city center was primarily constructed from 1880-1900. Many of those buildings still stand today.

The county courthouse, completed in 1959, is the sixth courthouse to stand on this site.
