Subject

Sherman, Clay County, Kansas:
Early Industrial Center in an Agricultural County

Description

Playing a major role in the railroad industry throughout the middle portion of the country, Sherman was a community inhabited by a wide range of ethnic groups. It saw a boom in economic activity but unfortunately, fell victim to a common die out of a town located too near the Republican River. Nevertheless, there was a time when Sherman was a lovely place to settle and live in.
