SHERWOOD, TEXAS (Wilbarger County). Sherwood was a school community thirteen miles north of Vernon in northwest Wilbarger County. It evolved during the mid-1880s, when settlers began to move into the area. In 1893 a rural school, which became Sherwood, was established to serve a small district north of Fargo. No businesses were founded; the mail came through Doan's. Early residents of Sherwood included the Hamilton, Sanderson, Hull, and Rogers families. In 1935 the Sherwood district was absorbed by the new Northside school. No evidence of the former community appeared on 1980 county maps.
