"The Truth - From a relocatee"


The Truth - From a relocatee - 2/25/2006

Bellville, OH

When I moved here 9 years ago from Arizona I did not portray the city as mentioned by the natives. Natives of Mansfield or Ohio take this state for granted. There are many, many wonderful things in the city of Mansfield. Ski resorts, tons of restaurants, Horseback riding, canoeing, water slides and hiking at Mohican State forest, shopping, Amish country and festivals you don't see in the West. Small town atmosphere is nice from the big-city living. The people are nice as can be. A calm atmosphere. I would agree it's not suitable for young adults as they prefer the big city, lights and action. That, you can get in Columbus or Cleveland.

Very Sad Place to Live - 3/28/2014

I have been living here for 1 yr. My job required me to move here..As soon as my contract is up which is this year. I am OUT of here. It is so depressing to live here. the weather would be bearable if it was not so depressing. everyone is drug addicts, a lot of elderly people. They require taxes from you but there are NO jobs and NO growth. Where are my tax $$ going. the hospital is the worst I've ever been to. Quality of service at Med Central is BAD in Mansfield. I don't understand how they made the best places to live list because it is really bad. I am 45 years old and I truly HATE Mansfield. I never knew such a place existed, I really think something is in the water because people are mentally slow,city hall is from 1930's,No one knows anything about anything here. I pray the end of 2014 get here so I can MOVE OUT OF this fresh hell. Don't be fooled. Don't move here is you have a life. Mansfield will for sure drain it [read more...]

Mansfield is teen friendly - 9/14/2009

Contrary to popular belief Mansfield actually is really teen friendly. We have two movie theaters, two drive in's a mall, and a bowling alley. plus We have a place where all the kids tend to hang out it's been called the miracle mile, mansfield drag strip, what ever you will, we just call it Park Ave. we go, we hang out, and we show off our cars. some kids race, they usually get caught, that's not the point. all in all it's actually a teen friendly town, and if you move in the right parts, it's a decent town to live in as well.[read more...]

Gravely Mistaken - 11/29/2008

I just got home from Mansfield, Ohio. I have looked on your city's website frequently as I was contemplating moving there (my main attraction being your colleges). First of all, I used a coupon that I got at a rest stop for Motel 6 on Trimble. The sign said "ALL NEW ROOMS"... There was nothing new about these rooms... The showerhead was extremely short (I am a 5'10 woman that had to do a backbend to shampoo my hair). The toilet was not even correctly connected to the wall because any time you sat on it made an unearthly sound, I could feel it coming away from the drywall. The room also smelled like cat urination, body odors, and cigarette smoke. Second of all, I tried to find a place to get some dinner. I was exhausted from driving all day and I wanted to find somewhere that was fast. I went to the Domino's by my hotel. When the people from Domino's asked for my number I told them I didn't know what number to give them because I was out of town. The people at Domino's looked at myself and my family like we were from a different country and that is what we felt like. I had even went to the local Rite Aid and when I went up to the cashier I said "Hello, how are you?" The cashier said nothing to me.... I would think that coming from Detroit, MI that people would be nicer but I was gravely mistaken. After all of this happened I tried to find a liquor store so I could at least have a few cocktails but there were no liquor stores to be found... When I talked to my fiance, who is a Mansfield, Ohio native I told him how rude everybody in your town was, and he, agreeing with me, said "Welcome to Ohio". I had a great feeling about Mansfield after seeing your website, but now, after having been there, I would never visit again nor recommend anyone I know to visit your city. Sincerely, Kristin R.[read more...]

A city with a changing workforce - 6/22/2008

There seems to be job growth but many HIGH paying jobs have left. Still a great value for home purchase and to raise a family. One hour from Columbus or Cleveland in a semi-rural setting.[read more...]

DONT BOTHER!!!! Save yourself the headache!!!! - 3/24/2007

I have lived around Mansfield Ohio for the last 15 years. I am moving out of this whole state, ASAP. Do yourself a favor and anyone who is reading this post, and is considering moving here, don't bother. It is freezing here for four months out of the year. Then after that it rains for another two months. I hope you don't like sunny weather cause there is not alot of that here either. This past winter it had a wind chill factor of -17 below for more than two weeks. It was so cold that my kids could not go to school.Snow and ice is bad here too. There are no jobs and no future in the jobs that are here. The property violence is also getting way out of hand. This past year people were slicing and destroying christmas decorations. How sad is that??? The only nice thing about here is the houses are fairly cheap and the summers aren't superhot. That is it!!![read more...]

Stick a fork in her shes dead. - 1/15/2007

Thats right everybody who reads this post. Mansfield Ohio is one crappy place. This is a town that loses business left and right. We lost three of them in 3 weeks and more will follow. In six months I am out of here as soon as I get out of college. This town is full of racist people, empty buildings, no good jobs and NO FUTURE.[read more...]

Great City to Learn and visit - 11/16/2005

Mansfield is both a great place to visit and learn. It's cost of living is really bad at all. Their aren't really that many high paying jobs. It's close enough to Cleveland and Clumbus that you could travel back and forth to work there. Cleveland and Columbus are both expensive to live it, living and Mansfiled can save money. There are bunches of stores and restreace, three movie therters. Much more.[read more...]

boring and depressing - 10/2/2005

By far one of the worst towns in the country. There are no good jobs and the weather is always expected to be bad. There is also nothing to do and cloudy days in winter with snow on the ground make you feel bored and depressed. The people are also not that nice and some are racist. Don't ever visit or move here.[read more...]
