Sherman Reviews

Sherman is a small town and all of it's residents are friendly. You know everyone which means you also know everyone's business. Nothing is a secret here and your life is everyone's business. Other than this fact, it is a very nice place to live with a couple shops or eating destinations owned by the locals. Definitely not a high class town and has a big focus on Farm life.

I like that it is very agriculturally diverse. There are many dairy and beef farms around and the country scene is nice. It is very calm and there are many people in the town that are into youth activities and bettering the community.
