Deadwood developed along both sides of Whitewood Creek, forming the two main thoroughfares of Main and Sherman Street. In the 1880s the firms on Sherman tended to be small retail and service businesses.With the arrival of the railroads in the early 1890s, Sherman became the town's railroad center and wholesale warehouse district.

This depot for the Grand Island and Wyoming branch of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad was on Sherman Street at the intersection with Deadwood Street. The railroad shared the tracks with the Deadwood Central, a steam line which ran to Lead. An electric trolley began running on the tracks in 1902.Construction of the Martin and Mason Block, on the left side of the photograph, began in 1893, making it one of the first large commercial buildings on Sherman.

William E. Adams came to Deadwood in 1877 and struck it rich with his grocery and provisions store. In the 1890s he moved his store from Main to 51 Sherman Street, shown here in 1909. He also constructed the four story building to the left, and later added a fourth floor to his original structure. [Photo credit] Wyoming State Museum.
