Settlement of this town dates from the 1840s. The gristmill established by R.S. Man and Julian Feild in the late 1850s formed the center of town and provided meal and flour for Confederate soldiers during the Civil War. The prospering community that had grown around the Man and Feild mill took on the blended name of "Mansfeild," but repeated misspellings over the years resulted in the acceptance of the conventional spelling of Mansfield.
A self-guided walking tour of several historic homes begins at the Mansfield Historical Museum and Heritage Center.

The city also features 11 parks and the 18-hole Mansfield National Golf Club.
