Sherman-Fisher-Shellman House:
Tours by appointment


Experience local history by visiting one of Westminster’s earliest homes. Tours of the Sherman-Fisher-Shellman house and Cockey’s Tavern tell Carroll County’s story and reveal the lifestyles of the influential individuals that resided there. Our historic homes combine the traditional Carroll County farmhouse with ethnic traditions of the Pennsylvania-German heritage and architecture. In addition to the house tours, guests will see the Historical Society’s many artifacts and collections that reflect Carroll County displayed through changing and permanent exhibits. Individual and group tours are by appointment only. Prices for tours are $5.00 per person and free for HSCC members. For more information or to schedule a visit to see our historic homes, call 410.848.6494, ext. 200
