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 museum currently has more than 50,000 objects in the collection. Museum staff are currently involved with the computerization of the collection and have completed over 14,000 documents, 9,000 historic photographs and 800 books.
The Museum is located in a building that formerly housed the Sherman Public Library. Built with funding from the Carnegie Foundation in 1914, the old Sherman Public Library building is one of a handful of remaining Carnegie Library buildings in Texas.
