The Clinton River has always been a main resource for Sterling Heights. Farming was its foundation with rhubarb, apple and peach orchards, and livestock. The township was primarily formed over surface water and land battles.
During the mid 1950s, Sterling Heights adapted a more industrial flavor than farming. The Ford Motor Company, Chrysler Corporation, LTV Missile Plant and Briggs Manufacturing all found common ground on which to build their futures in the growing township. This created a flux of plant workers who chased their dreams to Sterling Heights. With unemployment rates lower than the national average, recent job growth up, and cost of living down, modern families are still chasing their dreams to Sterling Heights.
