February 5, 2010
Observer Today
The Town of Sherman was formed April 7, 1832, from Mina, and has an area of 36 square miles. The first of the settlers was Dearing Dorman and near relatives, who came in 1823. The region was well wooded, and for many years supported a number of saw mills. Dairying is the present occupation of the section, although fruit growing approaches it in importance. Sherman became an incorporated village on September 8, 1890. The source of the town’s name is Roger Sherman, signer of the Declaration of Independence. The Town of Sherman comprises the second township and 14th range as described in the Holland Land Company’s survey. The first church was the Congregational church (now Presbyterian), June 23, 1827, and was called the First Congregational Church of Mina.
