Life on the Summit

Welcome to Mt. Sterling!

At the apex of rolling farmlands and pastures between the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers, at the junction of of WI 27 and WI 171, sits the Village of Mt. Sterling. In 1842 a locally famous man by the name of William T. Sterling settled there and later, in 1852, platted the area.

Mt. Sterling peers out at the landscape from its perch, giving views of the surrounding river valleys with a real sense of small town quietude.

Home of a true Wisconsin tradition, the cheese factory, the Mt. Sterling Coop Creamery makes award winning cheese made from both Cow and Goat milk.

Mt. Sterling is a great midway point for road trips into the surrounding ridges and valleys. Whether you’re cruising the ridge along WI 27 of headed down the valley on WI 171 to either the Mississippi River in the West or the Kickapoo River in Gays Mills in the East, you’ll find spectacular winding roads twisting their way through the forests and farmland of the county. Enjoy your visit and be sure to stop at the park and enjoy the views!
