The lake was man made during the 1950's. James Cole and Lewis Easlick were 2 men that brought Lake Sherwood from a dream into reality. At one point they had a dream of connecting all the lakes they had made together. The other lakes they dug and developed are Cedar Island Lake, Neva Lake, and Brendal Lake. Lot prices in 1960 were $8,900 but they were not selling. They raised the price to $10,150 and then the lots started selling. Lake Sherwood hosted the State salom championship in 1958 - 59.
The dam is 1600 ft long and the lake outlet flows into the Huron River via Ann Arbor into Lake Erie. During the fall they lower the level of the lake.
