City Development Board

Mount Sterling is located at the bottom of a hill along County Road W20 in southern Van Buren County.  It’s close enough to the Missouri border that when you look out from AJ’s Bar & Grill’s patio, you can see the Show Me State.

Mount Sterling is known for several things.  When the town was founded more than 150-years ago, it became known as “Dogtown” because reports said more dogs lived there than people.
