THE SHERMAN JAZZ MUSEUM
has a mission of jazz education and preservation of our American musical art form by exhibiting a unique collection of jazz LPs, videos, music playback machines, and jazz memorabilia.
THE JAZZ MEMORABILIA
centers around an impressive exhibit featuring the fantastic collection of the Maynard Ferguson estate.
THE HISTORICAL BUILDING
is a former Masonic Lodge, completed in 1924. Because of the architectural style and absence of alterations, the building is included in the 1984 publication of the Sherman Preservation League entitled "Sherman’s Architectural Heritage". The narrative accompanying the picture in the publication states “Located at the corner of Lamar and Walnut Streets, the Masonic Lodge is a good example of Neo-Classic Revival Architecture. At the time of its construction in 1924, this was one of the largest Masonic halls in the state of Texas. The Sherman Chapter was organized in 1842, making it one of the oldest organizations in Grayson County."
