Sherman Trail: Lancaster Masonic Lodge received its Charter on December 27th, 1820. Its members included Charles Sherman, the father of William Tecumseh Sherman and Mary Elizabeth Sherman. Charles was raised as a Master Mason in St. John’s Lodge No. 6 in Norwalk, Fairfield County, Connecticut in 1810. He relocated to Lancaster in 1819. He, together with Dr. James Wilson, Sheriff George Sanderson, and two others discussed forming a Masonic Lodge in Lancaster. With the support of other Masons already residing here, a Dispensation to form a lodge was granted in January 1820, with Charles serving as the first Senior Warden, and second Worshipful Master. He also served as Grand Master of Masons in Ohio. The first meeting space was the North Jury Room of the old Courthouse, that stood in the middle of the town square.

His daughter Mary Elizabeth Sherman was married to their next-door neighbor William James Reese, who was the most prominent Free-mason in Ohio, and was also Grand Master of Ohio in 1824. The Masonic apron belonging to Charles Sherman– now well over 200 years old– is one of the Lodge’s most treasured historic artifacts.
