26 Jan Betty Way Spanish Bungalows
Betty Way is perhaps Sherman’s most intact street, with 13 out of its 14 houses dating to 1929-1930 . A narrow one-block lane ending in a quiet cul-de-sac, this one-acre tract was laid out in 1896. It is rumored that the houses were originally occupied by workers from the nearby railyards. In the early 1950’s avocado and lemon trees shaded rural cottages on Larrabee Street north of Betty Way. By the end of the decade they had been replaced with multi-unit stucco apartment buildings.
