Where exactly did Mary “have a little lamb”? The poem was based on one Mary Sawyer who lived in central Massachusetts, in the town of Sterling to be exact. Other notable origins in Sterling were tissue paper dress patterns, which revolutionized home sewing and were invented by Sterling resident Ebenezer Butterick, and several scenes from the movie Shallow Hal, which probably won’t have the same staying power as Mary Sawyer in the poem written by Sarah Josepha Hale.
Sterling’s current history includes recent renovations of the town library and new facilities for the police and fire departments. Residents gather every year for the Sterling Fair, held every early to mid-September. The fair has games, rides, exhibits, a petting zoo, oxen pulls and lots of live music, food and hot air balloon rides. Sterling residents also enjoy the nearby Wachusett Mountain (state forest and ski area with 22 trails) and Leominster State Forest.
