    Summer Saturdays at the
    Sherman-Fisher-Shellman House

    Step back into Carroll County's history with a visit to the home of Jacob Sherman and his family.

    In 1807, Sherman built a large brick home on East Main Street in Westminster. It stood directly across the street from the tavern that provided Sherman's livelihood.

    Combining the ethnic traditions of Sherman's Pennsylvania German heritage with the style of a Carroll County farmhouse, the home includes such architectural innovations as built‐in cupboards and counter‐balanced windows. A visit to the fully‐restored house provides a unique opportunity to visit one of Westminster's earliest homes. To learn more about the house, click here.

    Tours begin in the Shop at Cockey's, 216 East Main Street. For more information or to schedule a group tour, contact the Historical Society at 410‐848‐6494.
