Long Description:
MANSFIELD, 5.5m. (town, alt. 178, pop. 6543, sett. 1659, incorp. 1775), was named for Lord Mansfield and occupies the site of an Indian winter camping ground. The town has been predominately industrial since 1800 when a large tack factory was opened. In 1921 the townmanager form of government was adopted.
The extensive gardens around the village devoted to the commercial cultivation of gladioli are the result of experiments started here in 1917 by a native of Holland.

This is the last stop of the year for me. At this very site my bike overheated and was put away for the season. I still have places to capture on this route and will finish next year.
