What Bert Has To Say About Sherman-Denison Metro Area

Sherman is a typical small Texas town on the southern extension of the Great Plains. Smaller Denison is about 6 miles north. Proximity to the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex, a central U.S. location, and the availability of a good labor force have allowed Sherman to grow into a Mid-sized manufacturing and industrial center with favorable prospects for future economic development.
