Sherman Trail: This is the home of General Sherman’s sister, Mary Elizabeth Sherman. In 1834, Mary Elizabeth Sherman’s husband, William Reese, commissioned Daniel Sifford to construct a grand home for his new wife. Sherman was at West Point during this time. The Reese family only lived there for a short time until they lost everything in a financial collapse and moved to Philadelphia. It is considered one of the finest Federal houses in Ohio. The property was the Sherman and Ewing children’s shared playground.

The Saylor House behind the Decorative Arts Center would have been the only structure on the property during General Sherman’s childhood.
