The City of Sterling Heights, situated along the banks of the Clinton River, is not only one of Michigan's largest in terms of population but also one of its largest in area. It is also one of the Michigan's fastest growing large cities. Located in Macomb County, Sterling Heights lies about 25 miles northeast of Detroit. Nearby communities include Warren (to the south), Troy (to the west), and Mt. Clemens (to the east). Sterling Heights is serviced by Michigan State Highways 53 and 59; and is close to Interstates I-75, I-94, and I-696.
Settlement in the area now made up by Sterling Heights began shortly after the Revolutionary War. Farmers soon took advantage of the area's rich soil and built large homesteads, and by 1880, Sterling Township was a prosperous rural area consisting of farm homes and fields of wheat, corn and other crops. When the railroad era arrived, passenger trains from the Detroit and Bay City Railroad passed through Sterling Township four times a day. Upon its incorporation as a city in 1968, Sterling Township became Sterling Heights. The word "Heights" was added to the township name to avoid conflict with the existing village of Sterling located in Arenac County. Sterling Heights today is home to literally thousands of commercial and industrial businesses and is considered an integral part of the greater Detroit metropolitan area.
