Sterling Historical Society
Located at the corner of Maple Street and Pine Street just a block from Main Street, the Sterling Historical Society maintains offices at the MacArthur Estate (also know as the Peck House) built around 1760. The property and home were donated to the Sterling Historical Society in 1968 having been owned by such notables as Kilburn, Robbins, Seaver, Conant, Dustin, Peck, Lent, Thayer ending up in Rev. K.C. MacArthur in 1925.
The Sterling Historical Society maintains an enormous collection of documents, photos and historical facts about the town of Sterling. It is open to the public on Tuesday mornings between 9AM and 12PM or by appointment.
