Oak Hill Cottage is a circa 1847 gothic revival mansion built by J. R. Robinson, a local entrepreneur. His empire of railroad, milling, and mining interests took him away from Mansfield at the time of the Civil War, and the Dr. Jones family, whose furnishings still fill the house, moved in by 1864 and occupied Oak Hill for the next 101 years.

The Richland County Historical Society purchased the house in 1965, restored it, and opened it in 1984 as a house museum.

Oak Hill Cottage is located at 310 Springmill Street in Mansfield.
