Where there is no limit to our small town hospitality!


 2022 TAX RATE


STERLING CITY, TEXAS has been called the "Windmill City" because at one time, the number of windmills standing in the city boundaries was near 150. However, the number of windmills has diminished within the City, but windmills can still be seen throughout the range land and still serve a valuable aide for ranchers of Sterling County.

In the last few years, Sterling County has become the home for the modern day windmills as numerous wind farms are sprouting up all over the County.

Sterling City, the county seat and only city in Sterling County, is a community with just over 1000 people enjoying the comfort and pleasure that can only be found in a small town. We invite you to come visit our friendly community where family and friends will always remain a priority.

We know that once you visit, you'll want to call it your home!




Sterling City Independent School District


Sterling City is the home of the mighty Eagles and Lady Eagles.  The school is classified as 1A and the school colors are purple and gold.  Sterling City is proud of the school system where students are given the guidance and the opportunity to achieve their goals.  Students at Sterling City ISD receive a one-on-one education that can't be found in the larger school districts. With the positive guidance and encouragement that each student has received in the Sterling City school system, graduates have gone on to   become lawyers, policemen, teachers, doctors, and more.   Computers with internet access are available in each classroom, computer labs at each school, and library.

Each year in August, the 4th and 5th grade students have the opportunity to attend the HEB camp near Leakey to take part in outdoor learning activities.  It is an enjoyable and memorable learning experience for the students and sponsors.
