SHERMAN, Texas) September 20, 2017 — “Urban Dialogue: Science After Dark” will present a discussion on the Woodmen Circle Home. Kathy Flynn, journalist and historian, and Linda Robertson, former employee of the Woodmen Circle Home will lead a discussion on the home, its history and legend. The event will be held in Kelly Square’s Grayson Hall, 113 S. Travis Street, in downtown Sherman. It is scheduled for October 3, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Admission to the event is free with complimentary snacks and beverages provided courtesy of the Sherman Rotary Club. Shawn Kirby of the Herald-Democrat will moderate the event.

“The Woodmen Circle Home is perhaps one of the most famous landmarks in all of Sherman. Though starting as a home for widows, the elderly, and orphans, it has an interesting past that has made it one of the most famous places in town and home to many spooky urban legends,” noted museum director Dan Steelman.

“Urban Dialog: Science After Dark” is a joint production of The Sherman Museum, Austin College, and the Sherman Rotary Club. The series is scheduled for the first Tuesday of every month. Discussions are held in Grayson Hall and cover a variety of timely topics from the fields of science and history.
