Beautiful restored birthplace home of William Tecumseh Sherman. Dates back to 1811 with 2 major additions after the Sherman family lived there.
General Sherman is known to all but his brother Senator John Sherman played a very important part in our history.
Previous reviews confused me as saying the home held many furnishings of the family. Our docent was quick to point out all the “period” furnishings to this home. Very few family possessions remain.
William Sherman was 9 when his father, Judge Charles Sherman, died leaving his wife with 11 children and no means of support. A neighbor of the family, Thomas Ewing, raised William. Later William married his foster sister Ellen Boyle Ewing at 30 years of age and had 8 children. As they say, the rest is history.
A wonderful interactive Civil War display along with Gen Sherman’s military tent is on display upstairs.

The boyhood home of William Tecumseh Sherman is worth a visit. The downstairs is filled with many original artifacts from the original home, procured from all over the country. The upstairs has a great collection of Sherman's Civil War leadership. The docents are knowledgeable and interesting. This is a worthwhile stop while in Lancaster.

Very knowledgeable friendly staff. Stopped by on a quiet Thursday and had a solo tour. Also checked out the Sherman statue and Civil War cannon in the nearby town square. I would also recommend a hike up nearby Rising Park overlooking Lancaster!

The Sherman House Museum in Lancaster, Ohio is well worth the visit. The house and museum are located with in the historical district of Lancaster, a quite charming city in southern Ohio. The tour was well worth the time, and our docent gave an excellent overview of watch parts of the house were original to the time of William Tecumseh Sherman’s and the later addition. Lots of original family items in the main house. The upper floor has a dedicated area to General Sherman and the Civil War with excellent displays and artifacts from the General and the war.
