1900  Directory -  "STERLING" SECTION

Sterling, named from William Alexander, Lord Sterling, of Revolutionary memory,
was formed from Cato, June 19, 1812. It lies in the extreme north part of the county, on
Lake Ontario, and has a rolling surface, with a trifling inclination toward the north. The
summits of the ridges in the south stand 200 to 300 feet above the lake, and Big Bluff, on
the lake shore, has about the same elevation. Little Sodus Creek, with its branches,
flowing into Little Sodus Bay, and Cortright Brook, flowing into Blind Sodus Bay, are the
streams. Little Sodus Bay is about two miles long and one wide, and is one of the best
natural harbors on the south shore of the lake. A swamp, covering several hundred
acres, extends along the lake shore, east of the bay, and another lies on the south
border of the town. The soil is a sandy and gravelly loam, and in some places is stony,
and difficult to cultivate. Outcrops of Medina sandstone and Oneida conglomerate, are
quarried in the town for building purposes. The former is extensively used for under-
pinnings of houses and farm buildings; and it has been observed that hogs are fond of
licking the stone whenever they have access to it. It causes them to foam at the mouth,
and hence they can be fattened only with difficulty.

Population, 2,959. Area, 26, 759 acres.

The PostOffice addresses of the residents of this town are Crocketts, Fair Haven, N.
Fair Haven, Martville, North Sterling, Sterling, Sterling Station and Sterling Valley, in
the town; North Victory, in the town of Victory, and Red Creek, Wayne Co.
