Step back into Carroll County’s history with a visit to the home of Jacob Sherman and his family. Sherman built a large brick home for his family in 1807. The house, at 206 East Main Street in Westminster, stood directly across the street from the tavern that provided Sherman’s livelihood.
The house combines the traditional Carroll County farmhouse with the ethnic traditions of Sherman’s Pennsylvania German heritage and architectural innovations such as counter-balanced windows and built-in cupboards.
A visit to the fully-restored house provides a unique opportunity to visit one of Westminster’s earliest homes. Tours begin in the Kimmey House at 210 East Main Street. For more information or to schedule a group tour, contact the Society at 410-848-6494.
