Someday in the near future, Scott Hibbard's dream of bringing a piece of Sterling history back to life will come true.

Hibbard is working to restore the Royer Home in Sterling. The historic building at 401 E. Second St. was the former home of Dr. Moses M. Royer, a general physician who was one of the first doctors in Sterling.

Dr. Royer came to town in 1856, said Terry Buckaloo, curator of the Sterling-Rock Falls Historical Society. The Royer Home was originally built by the doctor.
