Name of Place
|Warren Sherman is located south of Cherry Street between downtown Toledo
and the Old Towne neighborhood. Warren Sherman was settled from two sides; from people
moving away from the downtown in the south, and from people moving south from the Old
Towne neighborhood, filling in the undeveloped land area separating Toledo from the West
End. In the 1960s, Warren Sherman experienced a decline as families began moving to the
suburbs, leaving many buildings vacant or blighted. Many of these homes were demolished to
make way for the expanding St. Vincents Hospital, while many more were demolished
simply because they were beyond repair.
Recently, Warren Sherman has undergone major revitalization, and today, it is a mixture of old and new. New constructions of housing developments have replaced the vacant lots left from the 1960s, while other areas of Warren Sherman contain older, restored homes dating back to the turn of the century. Beacon Place, one of the newer developments, offers apartments, townhouses, and large duplexes for rental. Warren Sherman has many rental options with its several apartment buildings, as well as several blocks of newer single family homes. More blocks of single family housing construction are currently in development. Residents of Warren Sherman are just a short walk from downtown Toledo, and enjoy the benefit of having St. Vincent Medical Center as a partner in preserving their neighborhood.
Commercial districts can be found lining nearby Monroe Street, Cherry Street, and in the downtown area. The Franklin-Bancroft Shopping Center is located in Warren Sherman, and the Swayne Field Plaza, on the corner of Monroe Street and Detroit Avenue, is nearby.
Warren Sherman enjoys good road access. Downtown Toledo is only a short walk, drive, or bike-ride away. Cherry Street offers a quick link to North and West Toledo, and Bancroft Street leads west to The University of Toledo. Access to the Interstate system is only a mile away.
