Mansfield Township was established as a constabulary in 1688 and became incorporated in 1798. It is one of the oldest townships in Burlington County. Made up of one town, Columbus, and the four villages of Hedding, Kinkora, Georgetown, and Mansfield Square, the township continues to retain the rural, agricultural landscape that its first settlers witnessed. Mansfield Township has had a number of notable residents, from Prince Lucian Murat, nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte, to Thomas Larzelere, an architect who was instrumental in designing plans for the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. The vintage images in Mansfield Township, Burlington County bring to life the history of the township, from the days when weary travelers stopped for refreshment at the Columbus Inne to the modern, technologically driven community that the township is today.
