sterling heights mi

From 1836 to 1838, the Sterling Heights area was known as Jefferson Township. The name was later changed to Sterling Township and stayed this way until 1968 when it was incorporated as Sterling Heights MI. Up until the 1950s, agriculture, specifically rhubarb, served as the main industry.

Throughout the 1990s, Sterling Heights saw an influx of several ethnic groups, including Albanians, Bosnians, Coratians, Macedonians, Montenegrins, Poles, Serbians, and Slovenians moving from Detroit and Hamtramck. The automobile factories of Chrysler and Ford employed many of the Sterling Heights residents, deeming the city “blue collar.” Notable residents have included screenwriter Tom Jankiewicz, NHL player Greg Pateryn, singer Porcelain Black, and NBA player Kalin Lucas.
