Mansfield Historical Society
The Mansfield Historical Society was formed in 1970 with the express purpose of collecting, investigating and preserving the richness of our southern heritage, specifically genealogical, biographical and historical data about the Mansfield community and its residents. The Society oversees the operations of the Museum.
The mission of the Mansfield Historical Society is to collect, preserve, and share genealogical and historical data concerning the Mansfield community and its residents, while encouraging a greater understanding and appreciation of our rich heritage and traditions.
Historic Mansfield will experience a renaissance as the center of community life much as it was 100 years ago. It will be a vibrant place where people live, work and play in a unique environment surrounded by revitalized neighborhoods. As the thriving heart of a dynamic city, Historic Mansfield will be the natural gathering spot for everyday life, dining, entertainment, festivals and celebrations.
The Mansfield Historical Society meets at the Museum on the second Wednesday of the month at 11:00AM.
The Mansfield Historical Society has a variety of memberships available. We are pleased to provide our members several newsletters per year and free genealogical research assistance. We also offer assistance to our student members with school reports and projects.
Your membership is the core support for Mansfield Historical Society projects, publications and the continued support of our Historical Museum and Heritage Center in downtown Mansfield.

With your support, the Mansfield Historical Society strives to promote our community and its people through historical education and heritage research for residents and visitors.
