During a Sherwood Historical Society project, Sherwood Archer Glen 3rd Graders complete a cardboard mockup of Old Sherwood Town.

Then, a few minutes later at Sherwood City Hall, the City Planner explains just how important maps can be!

We looked at the old "city limits" of Sherwood and compared it to the UGB (Urban Growth Boundary) today. It has tripled since 1911! We also saw that the school is always built on the edge of those "limits."--Lilly

Excellent observations! We also observed that Old Town Sherwood is still in the geographical center of the City, and that her alignment with the railroad causes all kinds of present day traffic snarls.

That must be because the Railroad was built at a diagonal instead of at a true North/South alignment
