Take a trolley tour around Mansfield, Ohio, by way of this collection of vintage postcards. Starting the tour with The Square, see the series of ornate government seats built here, like the 1840 Greek Revival and 1878 Victorian courthouses, as well as the fountain and the gazebo located there. Next, traveling into the Downtown now encompassed by the Carousel and Central Park Districts, explore Main Street and the old hotels, the stone churches, and the railroad depots. From there, progressing to The Flats, catch a glimpse of the industries and the now-vanished agricultural works. Heading into The Neighborhoods from Downtown, visit the schools, the churches, and the Children's Home. And finally, following the tracks out past the Sturges area and Senator Sherman's mansion, ride to the end of the tracks to see Luna Park, Kingwood, and the Ohio State Reformatory.
