The Blockhouse is about to get some company

The City of Mansfield has announced that work is to begin soon on a project in South Park. REACH (Richland Early American Center for History), with the help of volunteer labor, will be digging the foundation for the early 1800’s log house that was disassembled and moved into storage on September 4. This event will take place on Sunday, October 30 beginning at 8:30 AM in South Park.

REACH’s vision is to eventually make the Blockhouse part of a small village composed of several cabins demonstrating what it took to survive during the early days in the United States. In the near future, this log house will become part of an educational center to showcase early Richland County and American history.
