A trio of downtown Mansfield’s most iconic buildings are on the market, according to two notices placed on craigslist, the Internet’s best-known site for classified advertisements. All three have been subjects of our “Landmarks of Mansfield” series.
And, for the sum of $2,725,000, you might well be able to buy all three – as well as a 51 spot parking lot and the claim of owning the tallest building in Richland County.
The Hancock and Dow Building (pictured) at 17-21 East Fourth Street has a price tag of $425,000, according to one of the craigslist advertisements. According to the ad, the structure has the potential to house 8 to 10 living units and features 12’ high ceilings and original base trim. The purchaser also has the potential to add a rooftop patio that would overlook The Brickyard and Richland Carrousel Park.
As with the other two available buildings, historic designations create the opportunity to obtain financial incentives for renovation work.
