The Sterling Homestead is the home on Main Street, in Stratford, Connecticut that was created by John William Sterling in 1886. Sterling House is a Romanesque mansion on the property. In its early days it was the home of the Sterling family. The mansion was designed by architect Bruce Price of New York, who also designed Osborne Hall and Welch Hall at Yale University.

Sterling's daughter, Cordelia, donated the house and its surrounding estate to the town as a park upon her death in 1931. Since 1932, Sterling House has been known as Sterling House Community Center, running a variety of events, functions, and public service programs for Stratford's community, ranging from day camps for children, to educational programs, sports events, addiction support programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous, and others.

The Sterling Homestead was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on February 1, 1976.

It is located at 2225 Main Street in Stratford.
