The Sherman Museum’s annual history tour at West Hill Cemetery has been postponed. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 20 at 1304 W. Lamar Street in Sherman.
This year, the lives of Edward Younger Goode, Lydia Starr McPherson, Mattie Carr, Andrew Hanson and Bruno H. Zauk will be recognized. Actors will also be talking about the Sherman storm of 1896.
“We are trying to be more inclusive at the museum,” Sherman Museum Director Betsy Deiterman said. “We want to tell a different story. In the future, we will see more history about the people that actually make up the demographics of this area.”
