Rural Country Oasis
Sherman, named for Roger Sherman, is the northern most town in Fairfield County wedged between the Berkshire Mountains and Candlewood Lake. Named the “Best Small Town in Connecticut” three times by Connecticut Magazine, Sherman is a true country gem with a quaint historic district listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Sherman is home to many well-known artists and writers and has a vibrant theater community and award winning Playhouse.
Although rural in nature, main routes 39 & 37 provide easy accessibility to neighboring towns where modern conveniences abound. Both Candlewood Lake and Squantz Pond offer residents lakefront properties with exquisite views, beaches for swimming and exceptional fishing. The Appalachian Trail goes through the northern end of the town providing the perfect afternoon hike.
There is only one public school in Sherman, The Sherman School, that facilitates kindergarten through grade 8. Students in grades 9 through 12 are given the option to attend other local area high schools.
Western Connecticut State University is conveniently located minutes away in Danbury and there over 40 colleges and universities within a 50 mile radius with more than three quarters of the adult population holding degrees of higher education.
