History

The area was settled in the 1840s by Scottish and Irish immigrants who followed the frontier as it moved west. Homesteads were established in the area in the 1850s, and the first church and original school were in place by 1860. The city bloomed when mills were built and was given the name “Mansfeild.” The name was misspelled so many times over the years that it finally became “Mansfield” by default.

Today, the city has moved away from its humble roots and turned into a thriving town. With shopping areas, restaurants and more, the area has everything anyone interested in real estate could want. Modern amenities and close proximity to major cities make this a strongly desired area to live for young professionals and families alike.

Imagine living in the big city and still having the chance to get out and enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer. Not only can you find city parks, but athletic fields that cover 50-plus acres, recreational facilities and spaces to rent for your next get together.
