Founded in 1853 as A. A. Rosenberg, located in San Francisco at the corner of Kearny and Sutter streets, Leander Schutzenbach Sherman (1847–1926) — who had been working as clerk for Rosenberg — bought-out his employer in 1870 and took on Major Clement C. Clay (1836–1905) as a partner in 1879. In 1892, Sherman, Clay & Co. was incorporated with Sherman as president. During the 1890s, the firm imported music, pianos, and musical instruments; and it manufactured pianos and church organs from its own factory. At that time, the two principals were Leonard Georges (born 1850), who served as treasurer, and Louis F. Geissler (born 1861).
In addition to locations in California, the company operated retail stores in Portland, Oregon, in Seattle, and in Houston.
The company had 21 stores in the 1950s. Clay Sherman, grandson of co-founder Leander Sherman, became president of the company in 1949.
As of 2013, Sherman, Clay had sold over two million instruments. Sherman, Clay sells new and used pianos manufactured by companies such as Steinway & Sons (which includes subcontracted pianos from suppliers sold under the secondary names Boston and Essex), the Yamaha Corporation, and the Henry F. Miller Piano company.
