Photographer Mike Sinclair returned to Mt. Sterling last week to document how the revitalization efforts have progressed over the last three years. On his first trip in 2013, he photographed the town prior to most work commencing, documenting the existing conditions and character of the place (more about the project here).
We’ve pulled together some of our favorite photos from both trips: the hand-made signs in the courthouse; a WPA mural in the post office; the earliest buildings constructed around the time of the Civil War; and some of the more unusual structures around town. The photographs capture this small Midwest town that our team has loved visiting over these past few years.
