Mansfield is located right in the middle of Ohio, which is very beneficial. Masfield is home of the Reformatory, Malabar farm, and even the Shawshank Redemption was filmed here! This town was starting to die down but, with little businesses popping up everywhere and only an hour from Columbus people are starting to find a true love for Mansfield

Mansfield is average to all other small Midwest towns. The people are friendly and nice. There are people of all different incomes and ethnicities. The schools are fairly small and nice. The sheriffs are close by for safety. Houses are a good value for the price they sell for. The biggest issue of the town is the drug problem, many people are addicted to heroin and there doesn't seem to be an easy way to fix it. The police get multiple calls a night about overdoses.
Low cost of living, good suburbs to raise kids, college opportunities and close enough to commute to Columbus for numerous career opportunities.
