Sherman House Museum

Description

This is the house where Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman and his brother, U.S. Senator John Sherman, were born. The original 1811 section and an 1816 addition contain two parlors, a study, a kitchen/dining area, and bedrooms filled with Sherman family memorabilia and period furnishings, fixtures, and decor. In a brick 1870s addition, you’ll find Civil War exhibits, including a recreation of General Sherman's field tent. On tours of the property, you’ll learn about Sherman’s early years, his stint at West Point, and his time as general---from that first battle at Bull Run to his later March to the Sea campaign and beyond to the Confederate surrender in North Carolina. You’ll also hear about his retirement years in New York City. A visit to this house pairs nicely with one to the nearby Georgian Museum, a restored, 13-room Federal house that's also under the auspices of the Fairfield Heritage Association.
