Mount Sterling, KY – The History
Early explorers in the area made note of a tree-covered mound that was 125 feet in height. The mound was dubbed Little Mountain; subsequent excavations revealed that it was an ancient burial site. When developer Hugh Forbes arrived in the area in 1790 and began selling lots to create a permanent settlement, he named the new town after Little Mountain and a Scottish town called Stirling. When the Kentucky Assembly officially established the town, the name was misspelled as Mount Sterling.
In 1796, Montgomery County was created and Mount Sterling was made the county seat. The town consisted of three taverns, four stores and 33 lots. Shortly thereafter, a courthouse and jail were built and a town pump was installed. By 1800, Mount Sterling had 83 residents and at least three churches.
As far back as the 18th century, Mount Sterling was an important commercial center in the area. Fresh produce and other goods were bought and sold in a newly constructed market house. This quickly evolved into Court Day, an annual event that continues to this day. Every October, more than 100,000 people descend on Mount Sterling from all over the country to sell and shop as well as enjoy musical performances and culinary delights.

• Asphalt Paving: When new parking lots and streets need to be constructed, asphalt is often a popular choice for the pavement. Asphalt overlays are frequently applied to existing pavements to prolong their useful life. This category also includes the installation of speed bumps as well as asphalt milling and reclamation.

• Sealcoating: When included in an effective program of preventive maintenance, sealcoating can often double the life of asphalt pavement. Sealcoating helps protect against the UV rays and leaked automotive fluids that can deteriorate asphalt pavement. Sealcoating also enhances the appearance of asphalt pavement.

• Asphalt Repairs: Timely repairs are vital if you want to obtain the maximum life from your asphalt pavement. Cracks and potholes allow water to reach the pavement’s base, eroding and destabilizing it. Extensive cracking will soon occur, requiring costly repairs. See more about Asphalt Repair
