| NAME: STIRLING
CLIMATE: Snow in winter
BEST TIME TO VISIT: Spring summer or fall
REMAINS: Only a few posts that supported the sawmill mark the place where the mill once stood.
| Stirling Falls was a mill site
that began with the hope that the Northern and Pacific Junction Railway
would lay its tracks nearby and open a station. A post office was opened
in 1883 when the population stood at 50. At that time, the community had
two stores, a small number of private homes as well as a bunkhouse for the
mill hands. But the railway chose a different route and the future of Stirling
Falls dimmed. Soon the mills shut down and the post office closed in 1919
and the residents relocated to either Burks Falls or Sundridge.
