Mansfield, OH

Known as "The Heart of Ohio," this small city provides an anchor for surrounding towns in the Mid-Ohio (north-central) region. Known for its unusual "Carousel District" and home to popular auto-racing sites (including the Mansfield Motorsports Park and the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course), Mansfield has about fifty thousand residents. The Ohio State Reformatory--used in the filming of movies such as The Shawshank Redemption and Air Force One--was a Mansfield landmark, and although a new facility has since been built, the original administration building still stands. Known as the "haunted prison," the site attracts tourists from states away, especially at Halloween.

NEIGHBORHOODS AND DISTRICTS

The Boulevards: This early-twentieth-century residential neighborhood is now a well-kept historical district, with more than 130 homes. It is located just outside the city center.

Woodland: Located in the southwestern part of Mansfield, this is the largest residential neighborhood within the city limits. Originally called Woodland Farms by it developer James Dickson in 1920, the area features the Woodland Reservoir on its southwestern edge of the community, and is home to the Mansfield Arts Center.

ECONOMY AND INDUSTRIES

Mansfield has a long history of manufacturing, beginning with stove manufacturing by companies such as Westinghouse and the Tappan Company. Beginning in the 1920s, Westinghouse was the area's largest employer. As industrial manufacturing began to decline in the 1970s, Mansfield made efforts to shift its economy, but manufacturing plants such as AK Steel, Newman Technology (Honda supplier), Hyundal Ideal Electric Company (generators), Therm-O-Disc (thermostats), The Gorman-Rupp Company (pumps), and Crane Plumbing still continue to thrive in Mansfield. Mansfield's largest employer today is MedCentral Health System, and the city is also home to three large food companies:
