The Sherman Museum

The Sherman Museum is a non-profit educational institution that acquires, preserves, interprets and displays items of enduring cultural, historical and educational value related to Grayson County and the local Red River area. Formerly known as the Red River Historical Museum, the Sherman Museum embraces our responsibility to engage and educate our community, enriching lives by promoting historical awareness, fostering research through shared knowledge, and encouraging interaction through exhibitions, programs and service events. The Sherman Museum was founded in 1976 by a group of civic-minded citizens who were concerned about the loss of heritage in the area. The City of Sherman leased the historic Carnegie Library building to the founding group and volunteers ran the museum until the late 1980s when the first experienced museum personnel were hired. With the introduction of education and outreach programs during the 1990s, the museum strives to meet future goals and responsibilities to the public. Off-site exhibits, children’s workshops, traveling exhibits which are available to schools, clubs and organizations; all allow the museum to reach a greater number of people in the community.
