town.stirling city

Often misspelled Sterling City - This place shares a zip code with Inskip, although they are 5 miles apart in a very dense forest setting. Stirling City California has a museum, a real fire station, a public phone booth, plus a rustic bed & breakfast. This community prides itself as being over 100 years old, and the place appears a little rough around the edges. If the locals are holding a block party.... just keep on driving.

description:
Rural mountain community that sees some snow. Lumber is the industry and residents claim 91% Irish ancestry, seriously? North Sierra Nevada mountains, small town residential, forested w/ trailers & older homes (built 1930s or 1960s). Well manicured park setting at the one museum w/ a nice Sequoia tree. Post office; no shopping, no market in town.
