Inscribed and signed by author. A Bicentennial history of Mansfield Ohio. Published by the Rotary Club of Mansfield. Mansfield is a city in and the county seat of Richland County, Ohio, United States.[6] Located midway between Columbus and Cleveland via Interstate 71, it is part of Northeast Ohio and North-central Ohio regions in the western foothills of the Allegheny Plateau, approximately 65 miles (105 km) northeast of Columbus, 65 miles (105 km) southwest of Cleveland and 91 miles (146 km) southeast of Toledo. Greater Cleveland comprises Richland County and Mansfield Metropolitan Statistical Areas as part of the 18-county Northeast Ohio region, which is also part of the Cleveland-Akron, OH Combined Statistical Area.It was founded in 1808 on a fork of the Mohican River in a hilly region surrounded by fertile farmlands, and became a manufacturing center owing to its location with numerous railroad lines. After the decline of heavy manufacturing, the city's industry has since diversified into a service economy, including retailing, education, and healthcare sectors. The 2010 Census showed that the city had a total population of 47,821,[7] making it Ohio's nineteenth largest city. (Wikipedia); Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 140 pages; Signed by Author
