Update: How We’re Preserving the History of Mansfield

More than two years ago, we posted an article about how we’re helping to preserve the history of Mansfield, Texas. You can find it here. In essence, we’re working with the city and local historical groups to program the future of the Ralph Man Homestead.

The Ralph Man Homestead will be open to the public, and will be used to teach about the history of the residence. We’re now completing an Information Center for the Homestead that will serve as an entrance to the complex. It is designed to be the “fabric” of the complex, and pay homage to the existing structure.

Currently, there is a now-completed city dog park adjacent to the Homestead. Mans Best Field Dog Park is a seven-acre park that includes four fenced-in paddocks on the beautiful wooded lot offering lots of shade and play space for pups big and small.

There are future phases planned, including combining log cabins on the property from the area.
