More Info




The Outlaw Trails Historical Museum is a collection of relics and story telling exhibits pertaining to the local area from past years gone by. Designed to entertain and educate everyone from two to ninety two! How can that be? To begin with as you enter the museum there is an1800's era toy exhibit to delight young ones. Followed by the Katy Railroad Forms Cabinet, Morse-Code machine, odd items found under the floor boards and many hard-to-identify items used in Pioneer Days. But don't worry, you will find ample explanations written by historian Ivert Mayhugh or catch him in person and get a personal tour. Sherman is not the only major focus in the museum but features many outstanding small towns, people, special buildings, disasters and great events, all a part of keeping history alive and not forgotten. People are the pride and joy of our past history and in fact you might find some of your relatives mentioned here. There were Outlaws like Frank and Jesse James roaming the area and causing mischief. Highlights also include President Teddy Roosevelts visit to the area on April 5,1905. See examples of early typewriters, televisions, computers, a school room and of course funeral memorabilia since that was the primary use of the building in the 1890's. Located on the 3rd floor of A Touch of Class Antique Mall in Downtown Sherman across from the Grayson County Courthouse. Please note that there is no elevator and you must take stairs to visit. The building is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark and Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. It would an honor to share a "little bit of history" with you and hope you would spend a "little bit of time" enjoying Historic Downtown Sherman.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Dec. 7)

EXCELLENT. Water stained; 65 degrees; 1.36 feet below pool. Striped bass are excellent with lots of fish measuring in at the 20 inch mark, and starting to plump up like Santa for their winter body. While the forecast has been windy the best success has come drifting in 30-60 feet of water with Alabama rigs. Days with birds are easiest to locate fish, so use electronics to locate. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors. Striped Bass are good on live shad and flukes under the gulls or along flats in 20-30 feet of water. The fish have been better on the north and west ends of the lake near the dirtier water. Blue and channel catfish have been good in deep water on cut shad and prepared baits. Bigger fish are still moving shallower drifting big cut shad or drum. Largemouth and smallmouth bass have been slow on live shad along the smaller clumps or rocks along the east end of the lake and crankbaits along the gravel on the south end of the lake. Crappie are good on minnows and light colored crappie jigs. Catching fish in various depths from 15-30 feet on dense brush piles and hard structure. Report by Jacob Orr Lake Texoma Guaranteed Guide Service.
