Peter Ladd first contracted to buy land in Sherwood on 25 October, 1899. He borrowed $364 at 6% interest per year from George L Lloyd. His payments were to be $50 each of the first, second, third and fourth years, with the fifth year a payment of $164 plus interest. Peter was buying the E ½ of SW ¼, Section 6, Town of Sherwood. A warranty deed between Peter A Ladd and the Clark County Land Company, is dated 29th October 1900. On January 4, 1909 a warranty deed showed sale of these 80 acres to C.M. Bradford, a widower, of Neillsville.


A Thanksgiving entertainment was given in the Sherwood Town Hall on Wednesday evening, Nov. 26, 1913 by the pupils of Myra Jahr’s school with the help of a few outsiders.  The program consisted of music, recitations, dialogues, tableaux, a pumpkin drill and a play entitled "Dr. Cure All", Admission was just 10 cents.  The profits were used to get a new book case for the school house.  The program began at 8 o’clock sharp which enabled farmers to complete their chores before attending.


Chickens Suffered at Sherwood

The ladies of the Sherwood Community Club sustained their fine reputation last Thursday night by serving another of their good chicken pie suppers, for which they have become famous throughout this region for many miles around. The supper Thursday night was the equal of those served before, and by reason of experience won at previous suppers this one was handled with more apparent ease than the others. The crowd of hungry patrons was taken care of rapidly and with most efficient service. Booths were arranged in two corners of the hall at which were sold home-canned goods, fancy work, ladies household garments, etc., and were quite liberally patronized. In the hall and table decorations were suggestions of Halloween, such as pumpkin lanterns and other things. The supper itself was a real feast. A group of town of Sherwood girls sang a series of songs. It was fine singing and certainly reflected great credit on those who trained them.

Among those present from outside the immediate neighborhood, were businessmen of Marshfield, Pittsville, Granton, City Point and Neillsville, besides a number of teachers from the country schools round about, and Miss Kathryn Wright, the new Supervising teacher. All together was made up a most harmonious and happy crowd of people.
