Longtime residents of the north Boone County community of Sturgeon possess a deep awareness of their town's history. Younger families choose Sturgeon for its quiet streets, recreational offerings and the strong local schools. Everyone we met in Sturgeon appreciated the sense of community that is central to living in this town of about 800 near the Boone-Randolph County line. KBIA's Trevor Harris filed this installment of the 40/40 Project from Sturgeon.
