 Sherman TavernThe Historic Sherman Tavern built 1812 served as a Roadside Tavern  at Sherman, Grant County, Kentucky  when the stagecoaches rumbled over the Kentucky hills for passengers who were weary, and perhaps a little thirsty after the long ride over the bumpy and twisty trail. The fact that bourbon whiskey was free to the travelers staying at the tavern, may have had something to do with this popularity.  It is related that the Sherman Tavern was one of the first buildings in this section of the country to have its walls plastered, a process which was quite a luxury in the early days. A piano, another novelty and very expensive at the time, was a part of the tavern’s furnishings. . In the rear of the tavern there was a large stable where fresh teams of horses for the coaches were kept. Horses were changed every ten miles. A small bar for the drivers and guards of the coach and the men who drove cattle between Cincinnati and Lexington
