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.

Butte County
NE of Chico
off Hwy 32 via the Skyway

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.
