The Sterling Land Trust

We honor the pioneering legacy of the administrators, teachers and students of Sterling High School.

The Sterling Land Trust is a nonprofit, 501 c3 organization formed in 2010 by concerned residents and Sterling High School alumni who wanted to restore the glory of their community. Our organization is a neighborhood community land trust that primarily serves the Greenville, South Carolina Special Emphasis neighborhood of Sterling. However, we endeavor to work alongside other low-wealth communities to make Greenville a better place for everyone. 

We focus on neighborhood sustainability, grassroots organizing and the development of commercial and residential real estate. Since our formation, we have begun the process of revitalizing the neighborhood by beginning small-scale urban farming and acquiring properties to redevelop. Sterling is poised to become a leading Greenville neighborhood once again!


To protect, preserve and promote the historic legacies of the Sterling community through economic development, education, and historic preservation.
