5. Serene Sherman

In Sherman continue on Rte. 39 north to explore the center of Sherman.This charming village is located at the north end of Candlewood Lake. The town was incorporated in 1802 and named for Roger Sherman, a signer of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

Classic white clapboard houses, a traditional New England Church, a pre-Revolutionary war graveyard, two museums, and a scenic walking trail epitomize the allure of Sherman. In the center of town look for the large granite boulder bearing a World War I memorial plaque and the wrought iron post lantern designed by Clarence Rhodes and made by William Worden, that is a symbol of Sherman's heritage.
