Originally a thriving native american community, Sherwood was settled by pioneers in the mid 1800's. The town has grown quite a lot since then, with a recent spike in development bringing the modern day population to nearly 20,000.
The town, despite it's busy strip-mall infested highway, has been recently named to several national "top small places to live" lists.
Sherwood has managed to hold onto to a small portion of it's historical roots. The Smock homestead has been wonderfully perserved. The Smock's were a prominent local family and the town was, for a time, even called Smock Ville in their honor.
The small old town, while not as historic or quaint as the Smock house grounds is thriving and aesthetically pleasing.comments powered by
