Mansfielders will have a number of options to fill an early fall weekend close to home. If you can spare a day – or any afternoon at least – from household work, consider any of the following:
The 166th Annual Bellville Street Fair begins at 4:00 pm on Wednesday when rides and concessions open, and continues through a horse show at 1:00 pm on Sunday afternoon. A full schedule of events is available at the Fair website. More…

Where we would go on a beautiful Ohio September Saturday morning? Why, the Blockhouse, of course, our inspiration here at 1812Blockhouse.

The event, which runs until 4:00 p.m. this afternoon, was attended by several families during the time we were there; we also observed a musket firing demonstration.

On September 10 and 17, Oak Hill Cottage joins over 100 other historic destinations across the state, and several others in Richland and Crawford Counties, in “Ohio’s Open Doors,” an effort of the Ohio History Connection to promote the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act.
Included will be an Open House from 2:00 pm to 5:00 p.m. at the Oak Hill Carriage House, where a 1905 National Automobile manufactured in Mansfield and other behind the scenes artifacts will be on display. A one mile preservation walk will step off at 2:30 pm each day featuring the historic preservation involvement of the Richland County Historical Society at the Cottage and surrounding neighborhood.
