Sherman, founded in 1848, hasn't stayed in the past. Located in Grayson County, on the north edge of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Sherman is a growing city of 45,000 and the hub of the new “Silicon Prairie.” The world-class business environment has attracted over $35 billion in manufacturing investment and 4,500 jobs in 2021/2022, with Texas Instruments and GlobalWafers both announcing new wafer fabrication facilities. Sherman’s well-established, diverse manufacturing base supports an educated workforce, welcomes entrepreneurs, and fosters investment in business innovation. An abundance of natural resources and array of cultural activities nurture community life and work.
A community that makes you feel at home
From its historic downtown district to the industrial parks, Sherman still has that "hometown" feel that makes doing business and building connections easy. Housing in Sherman is affordable and includes a range of options, from apartments to condos, historic homes to thriving new subdivisions. Plenty of green space and proximity to Lake Texoma add to the Sherman advantage.
A retail, labor, and transportation hub
Serving growing communities in North Texas and southern Oklahoma, national and local retailers and restaurants offer plenty of choices just minutes away from any neighborhood. Major highway improvements are underway, strengthening the transportation network at our crossroads of U.S. highways 75 and 82, and giving easy access to distribution and travel.
Lively community life from parks to performing arts
Sherman has great traditions, from its 93-year-old historic community theater group to over 30 years of free concerts all summer long, and much, much more. Recreational options include city parks with soccer and ball fields, mountain biking, disc golf, fishing, and trails. Nearby Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge and Eisenhower State Park add to the variety of outdoor attractions.
