The Sherman House, a boarding house and hotel, was built by Prescott businessman M.H. Sherman in 1883.

Moses Hazeltine "M.H." Sherman was born December 3, 1853 in West Rupert, Vermont/died September 9, 1932 in Los Angeles, California. In 1874, he moved to Prescott, Arizona, and opened the Sherman House. Sherman served as Adjutant General of the state militia for the Arizona Territory in 1883. He then moved to what is known today as Sherman Oaks (named after him), near Los Angeles, California. Sherman's primary business was that of developing streetcar systems, both in Phoenix, Arizona, and in California. Source: Sherman Library and Gardens: "The Papers of M.H. Sherman."
