September 6, 1950
A volunteer fire department was organized for Sherwood (Pulaski County). It was not until September 1951, however, that the town was able to get its own fire truck. Sherwood is a city in central Arkansas just north of North Little Rock (Pulaski County). In 1990, Sherwood was named the fastest-growing town in Arkansas, in terms of both population and area, as it has frequently annexed land over the years. In 1950, there was a campaign to have Sherwood give up its status as a town. Many people worked to convince the Sherwood residents to remain an official town, and they succeeded in 1951.
