Mount Sterling History
The first part of Mount Sterling's name is derived from an ancient burial mound that was found at the site where the city now stands. The second part of the name is taken from Stirling in Scotland, although, when the town was officially named in 1792, it was misspelled as "Sterling".
Over the years, the town became a commercial and trading hub for eastern Kentucky. The importance of "Court Day" as a day for trading and commerce only grew, persisting until this day when thousands of visitors arrive in October to partake in the events, activities, and attractions that surround the event.
During the Civil War, Mt. Sterling saw occupation by both Union and Confederate troops at different points. However, after the Battle of Mt. Sterling in June of 1984, Confederate forces were pushed out, and the town was not retaken.
