1. Mount Sterling Town Hall Marker
Inscription.  These columns and lintel are from the original Town Hall of Mount Sterling. The building was erected in 1883-1884 and was destroyed by fire November 7, 1982. They serve as a reminder of our past, as this building will be an inspiration to our future. Construction has been made possible, in part, by a gift from John W. Galbreath, native son whose achievements throughout the world have brought honor to our community.

Also see . . .  History of the Village of Mount Sterling. In 1882 the town erected a brick, three story town hall that housed government offices and an opera house. In November 1983 the old town hall, long a local landmark, burned. However, a new structure quickly rose to replace it and was dedicated in June, 1985. Symbolic of the community, its design reflects the old structure but within is modern and efficient. (Submitted on August 3, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
