Exploring Sherman CT

Sherman CT is the least populated town in Fairfield County, with just over 3,600 residents. The appeal of Sherman is strong for citizens and visitors alike, with Sherman being named the “Best Small Town in Connecticut” three times by Connecticut Magazine. History, the Appalachian Trail, and a close proximity to major metropolitan areas add to the draw of Sherman CT. 

A Brief History of Sherman, CT

The Algonquian tribe once lived on the land that is now known as Sherman CT. Approval from the General Assembly to establish a new township was received in 1724. Historical memory indicates that settlers of the Colony of Connecticut negotiated with Chief Squantz who refused to sell New Fairfield. Chief Squantz died, and his surviving sons also refused to sign over the land.

On April 9, 1729, a group of colonists called “The Proprietors” was able to secure the transaction, purchasing 31,000 acres that would become New Fairfield and Sherman CT. Sherman did not receive its name until its incorporation in 1802 and was so named for Roger Sherman. He was the only American to sign The Continental Association of 1774, The Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and The Federal Constitution. 

Over the course of the 19th Century, Sherman saw the formation of industries such as a sawmill, hat factory, and agriculture. Today, Sherman is a popular spot, being named the “Best Small Town in Connecticut” three times and serving as a popular weekend getaway for New Yorkers. Hikers pass through Sherman along the Appalachian Trail
