What Bert Has To Say About Mansfield Metro Area

Mansfield is a mid-sized industrial town in north-central Ohio. The dominant rust belt industries, including heavy equipment, steel auto, farm machinery, and metallurgical industries have declined in a pattern consistent with much of the region. New retail, commercial and residential areas have grown out mainly to the west in Ontario. Although there isn’t much to do in the immediate area, the area brings a low cost of living, a notably low cost of housing (especially for the quality), and a low violent crime rate. The city is located between Cleveland and Columbus, about 70 miles from each, giving access to their amenities and services.
