Town of Sherman


Incorporated in 1802, the Town of Sherman, located in northern Faifield County, combines rolling hills and scenic farms with a town center steeped in history and recreational facilities on Candlewood Lake.


While residents cherish the wonderful natural resources and peaceful country charm of a small town, they also welcome the conveniences of modern living.  With an area of 23.5 square miles and a population of approximately 3,800, 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 conveniently close to 3 train stations with service into the New York areas, Brewster, Southeast and Wingdale/Rawling.  All this and one of the lowest tax rates in the State. (Mill Rate: 15.7)
