Hoyt Sherman Place is the home of Hoyt Sherman, built in 1877 and located in Des Moines, Iowa.
The house stood empty after Sherman's death in January 1904 until 1907 when the Des Moines Women's Club began using it as their clubhouse. The Club added an art gallery to display their art collection creating the first public art museum in the city. Later in 1923, a 1400 seat auditorium was completed for Club programs.
The house was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1977.
