Incorporated in 1802, the Town of Sherman, located in northern Fairfield County, combines rolling hills and scenic farms with a historic town center and recreational facilities on Candlewood Lake (Connecticut’s largest man-made lake).
Candlewood encompasses 5420 acres with over 60 miles of shoreline. The lake is approximately 11 miles long and 2 miles wide at its widest point. Candlewood Lake offers boating, fishing, and lakeside dining. Sherman is also home to “The Club at River Oaks”, a new 350 Acre private community with luxury homes and homesites with 18 hole championship golf course.
While residents cherish the wonderful natural resources and peaceful country charm of a small town, they also welcome the conveniences of modern living. The younger generation can receive a solid academic foundation at the elementary/middle school (K-9) located in Sherman, and older students have a choice of attending high school in several of the adjacent towns. A Private nursery school is also located in town.
Residents also enjoy plenty of leisure and recreational activities at the well-kept athletic fields, tennis courts, jogging path, and Town Park. An appealing town beach and boat launch are provided in a secluded cove location. An active historical society maintains records and memorabilia from Sherman’s long history, and the Sherman Players delight audiences with theatrical performances.
With an area of 23.5 square miles and a population of approximately 3800, it is hard to believe that Sherman is only 69 miles from Manhattan. Close to NY Route 684 and CT Route 84, Sherman offers rural tranquility without isolation. Sherman is also situated conveniently to 3 train stations with service into the New York areas, Brewster, Southeast, and Wingdale/Pawling.
All this and one of the lowest tax rates in the state.
Come see and enjoy our lovely Town!
