Central Christian Church
(401 S. Travis St., Sherman)


This congregation traces its beginning to the late 1850s, when pioneer minister Benjamin Franklin Hall came to this area to preach and organize a church. Early meeting places included a brush arbor and a union meeting house at the local Masonic hall. A sanctuary was built in 1875 on the corner of Montgomery and Houston streets. A site on the corner of Travis and Cherry streets was acquired in 1905. A part of Grayson County history, this church has served the people of Sherman for over 130 years. (1987)
