Sherman Historical Society and Museums [CT]

The Sherman Historical Society seeks to preserve and share the history of Sherman, Connecticut, founded in 1802. To this end, the society operates two museums. The 1829 Federal-style Northrop House presents exhibits of local historical interest, while the circa 1810 Old Store presents both local history and the contents of a general store circa 1867.

The Northrop House Museum and The Old Store offer exhibits. The Old Store also offers period rooms.
