Garden
Sherman Library & Gardens was founded in 1966 by Arnold D. Haskell and named in memory of Moses H. Sherman, educator and California pioneer.

Sherman Library & Gardens provides a museum of living plants, displayed in an attractive setting of fountains, sculpture and well-tended shrubs and lawns. Large flower beds and numerous hanging baskets radiate seasonal color and accent the Early California architectural theme of the surrounding buildings.

The Library maintains a small exhibit room displaying items of historical interest. Within the Library itself hangs a modest collection of California impressionist paintings

  • For a small entry fee you can walk through beautiful gardens that are very well maintained, and they have a terrific restaurant where you can enjoy fine gourmet food!
  • I have had lunch at Sherman Library & Gardens several times. Each time I was impressed with the quality of the food. In addition, the setting is lovely...serene, beautiful, and quiet. Strolling through the gardens and gift shop before and after lunch made it an especially nice place to meet-up and visit with a friend on a sunny afternoon
  • This is a truly a secret garden. If you blink you will miss it and never know it's so beautiful inside. We visited this by accident and was well worth the time. There's a gift shop and cafe onsite.
  • Beautiful gardens that are well planned and laid out in such a way that they beg you to look on for more sensual treats around the corner. I visited in the fall when they added gourds and pumpkins to the gardens … hints of things to come were shared indicating beautiful additions as the season changes to the winter holiday....
