Sterling is tucked into the plains of north eastern Colorado, and as the most populated city in Logan County it is the focus of retail and commerce in the region. The historic downtown is a thriving commercial district with considerable inventory of historic buildings and streetscapes. The focus of the downtown on the east side, and at the end of Main Street, is the railroad maintenance yard and trackage. This barren ground detracts from the quality of the shopping district. Local merchant groups asked for a showpiece monument at the end of Main Street that would block views of the railroad yard and be a welcoming feature to accent the history of their downtown.
