The municipality is located in north-central Ohio in the western foothills of the Allegheny Plateau,

It was founded in 1808 on a fork of the Mohican River in a hilly region surrounded by fertile farmlands,
and became a manufacturing center owing to its location with numerous railroad lines.
After the decline of heavy manufacturing, the city's industry has since diversified into service economy,

Mansfield's official nickname is "The Heart of Ohio".
It is the largest city in the "Mid-Ohio" region of the state, the north-central region which is generally considered to
extend from Marion, Delaware, Knox, Morrow, Crawford, Ashland and Richland counties in the south,
to the Firelands area south of Sandusky in the north.
Mansfield is also known as the "Carousel Capital of Ohio" and "Racing Capital of Ohio".
