Sharon incorporated as early as 1884, setting its limits in a half mile radius from J. A. Kendrick's store.

Around the 1890s, visitors flocked to the city to visit its Electric Health Resort. Gathering in an underground chamber, aristocrats would lounge on the bedrock which they believed would provide electrical healing powers.
