It’s State Championship Week In Richland County!

2 Dec , 2019  

The superlatives have been flying around the county for the last three days, and with good reason.

One of the largest and perhaps the smallest enrollment schools are making a statement about the quality of sporting in the north central Ohio area.

20 Nov , 2019  

Living in a community in the network of regional campuses of The Ohio State University, and with the proximity to Columbus, many Mansfielders take note of University news. From time to time, 1812Blockhouse has shared news of such developments.

And, with the large number of Buckeye football fans in Richland County, news from Columbus today will undoubtedly be well received.

There’s good Ohio State University football news on two fronts: College football’s greatest rivalry is back in Columbus in 2020, and the proposed cost of a season ticket to see the Buckeyes next year is unchanged from 2019. More…
