Once one of the largest towns in Rice County, Sterling is located in the southern portion of the county on the Arkansas River eight miles south of Lyons—the county seat. The settlement was first established in 1871 and called Peace. One of the earliest settlers was A.G. Landis who built a store in the settlement which consisted of only about seven families. When the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad built their tracks through the town site in 1872, the town began to grow. In 1876 the city was incorporated and its name was changed to Sterling, and by 1883, its population had grown to about 1,500.
