History of Mansfield, TX

The City of Mansfield began as an outpost for nomadic Native Americans from a collection of tribes. Anchored by a successful grist mill, the community eventually grew from humble roots into a bustling rural community, though it was still not officially incorporated as a city at the time. 30 years later, Mansfield’s 400 residents voted to officially incorporate as the City of Mansfield.
