Old Sherman Public Library
(301 S. Walnut St., Sherman)


A subscription library was established in Sherman in 1901 and housed in a rented room. In1911, the city submitted a request to the Andrew Carnegie Foundation and received $20,000 for a library. This lot was purchased in 1912 for $2,500 and plans were drawn for a structure of simplified Beaux-Arts styling by local architect John Tulloch (1860-1947). The building served as a library from 1915 until 1973. Of note are the three interior murals, completed in 1934.
