Since we began publishing in 2016, 1812Blockhouse has shared details about pieces of local history that dot Richland County. Through our Landmarks of Mansfield series and our Landmarks of Richland series, we have presented research on over 40 buildings, monuments, and downtowns.
As we begin 2020, we’re eager to add to that number, and we’re turning to you for help. Do you have a favorite local landmark that you’d like to see profiled on 1812Blockhouse? Is there a building you’ve been wondering about, or a neighborhood or downtown you would like to see highlighted? If so, please send us an email at: 1812Blockhouse@gmail.com and we’ll get right on it!

Over the next three days, 1812Blockhouse will be reviewing the top ten most read stories on our site during the past year as we look back at 2018.
During that time, over 1,000 stories were posted.
While the most-read stories on our site may not correspond to a “most important news” list, it does show what topics are readers found to be interesting. It is topped by a story with a “national angle,” and includes posts about new local projects and retail operations as well as stories about local history.
We’ll be starting our series on Friday looking at stories counting backwards from ten to seven. We’ll add three more over the weekend and finish with three on New Year’s Eve Day.
