Historic Downtown Mansfield
Already one of the state’s oldest continuing downtown areas, Historic Downtown Mansfield remains the heartbeat of the city. More than 125 years ago, the crossroads of Main and Broad streets was where Ralph Man and Julian Feild located the grist mill that would drive the growth of the town they called Mansfield. Today, the Historic Downtown has retained its charm and is undergoing a renaissance.
From new restaurants and shops to live music at the restored Farr Best Theater and numerous city festivals and special events, the downtown area is once again thriving and drawing residents and visitors to its unique and eclectic vibe.
