Welcome to the Village of Sheridan, nestled in the heart of Montcalm County!
Driving in from the south, one passes Pearl Lake and enters the quaint downtown business district. Main Street features newly resurfaced streets, sidewalks and street lights, as well as a beautiful clock on the corner of Washington Street. The clock was purchased with donations made by the Community. Updated housing surrounds the area and an elementary school serving Central Montcalm Public School District is just to the east. While going through the village does not take long, slowing down to check out what is offered or meeting some of its residents is definitely worth it.
Sheridan, population 650, is near the center of the state and is equidistant from the large cities of Lansing, Grand Rapids, Mount Pleasant, and Big Rapids. We have a variety of downtown businesses, including: a grocery store, dollar store, restaurant, barber shops, VFW, community center, salons, auto parts store, funeral home, bowling alley, ice cream shop, hardware store, chiropractic office, hospital, medical offices, plastics factory, lumber yard, churches, fire station and smokehouse for training, bar, post office, bank, automotive dealer and the Sheridan Village Office. The Village of Sheridan is a member of the Heart of Montcalm Chamber of Commerce.
Education is important to village residents. Sheridan school-age children attend Central Montcalm Public School. Post-secondary opportunities exist nearby. Montcalm Community College is five miles away, offering two-year degrees, enrichment courses and fitness opportunities, including a pool and rock climbing wall.
Sheridan and its surroundings offer more than most small communities because of our numerous lakes, snowmobile trails, and golf courses. Sheridan is graced by Pearl Lake and its public beach that was recently updated with a new pavilion, barbecue grills, picnic tables, handicap accessible fishing dock and a new playground. One exciting weekend to explore is Sheridan Springfest, celebrated annually on Memorial Day weekend with parades, amusement rides, family activities and more!
