Sterrett is a census-designated place and unincorporated community in Shelby County, Alabama, United States. Its population was 712 as of the 2010 census. At one point in its history, Sterrett was a center of pottery production in central Alabama. Also known as "Jugtown", Sterrett was once home to at least ten potters.
