Nicknamed the Heart of Ohio for good reason, Mansfield is a city teeming with Midwestern history and beauty. One local landmark, restored to its Roaring Twenties glory, has plenty of both: the Renaissance Theatre. While you're browsing Mansfield homes for sale, get to know the city and its neighborhoods a little better, starting with one of the landmarks that make our downtown district so special. Here's what you need to know about the Renaissance Theatre on Park Avenue.
The Renaissance Theatre started life as a majestic movie house called the Ohio Theater. A Clara Bow movie was the main attraction on opening night, and it thrived for its first two decades, hosting movie premieres and touring Broadway shows when it wasn't showing iconic films like The Wizard of Oz and Casablanca. In 1980, the Ohio Theater became the Renaissance Theatre, and the lights came back on after years of wear and tear. The theater still has its original seats and Grand Baroque design details, but other elements bring it into the 21st century, such as the hydraulic lift in the orchestra pit and the updated glass skywalk connecting the theater to the hotel next door.
As the shortest month of the year, it's hard not to spend all 28 days of February caught up in the love and laughter that surrounds Valentine's Day. When Cupid points his arrow towards Mansfield, the town embraces the celebration of Saint Valentine like a warm hug. As you indulge in all of the fun, romantic and special events within a short drive from Mansfield homes for sale, our REALTORS® at Haring Realty suggest that you spend a weekend finding out if you're Love/Sick at the Mansfield Playhouse!
With love comes moments of heart-stopping happiness and heartbreaking sadness. Award-winning actor and talented playwright John Cariani's popular production Love/Sick will take audiences on a journey that delves into the heartache and bliss that love brings. A typical Friday night in an alternate suburban reality sets the stage for these nine hilariously twisted short plays.
It's easy to see why Mansfield, Ohio is dubbed as the "Fun Center of Ohio." It houses an indoor wooden carousel, 33 city parks, and a number of outdoor concert venues. However, if you're looking for things to do with your children this winter, our REALTORS® are here to share details about a local attraction your children are sure to love--Little Buckeye Children's Museum.
The Little Buckeye Children's Museum features 30 different exhibits that promote hands-on learning for young children two to ten years old. It uses play exploration throughout their exhibits to encourage children to use creative, critical thinking, motor skills, and social interaction skills. These exhibits provide familiar and realistic experiences.
Craft beer fans have a big reason to love Richland County. Laxton Hollow Brewing Works, which opened its doors in the village of Lexington, Ohio in 2016, brews and serves a class of authentic ales that are almost impossible to find anywhere else in the United States. When you're in the area touring Lexington homes for sale, we highly recommend paying Laxton Hollow Brewing Works a visit.
You might not know it, but ales that are brewed using traditional methods are extraordinarily rare in America. In fact, there's a good chance you've never had one. But with such a tremendous boom in craft brewing in recent years, how can it be that this style of beer is so hard to come by?

A rich history and bright future come together in Richland County, Ohio. It's a great place to put down roots, literally and metaphorically – the county's name comes from the fertile soil found here – and thanks to the help of the Ohio Genealogical Society, it's a place where many Ohioans can trace their families back through the years and miles. So whether you're interested in learning more about your family's history or planning for its future, our REALTORS® believe Richland County is a great place to do so.
The Richland County village of Bellville is an excellent example of this region's unique and fascinating history. Founded in 1808 and the site of a minor gold rush in 1853, it's a tight-knit but welcoming community that offers small-town charm just minutes from the larger city of Mansfield. The Bellville Bandstand, built in 1879, still stands in the heart of the village, and you can trace the path of the B&O Railroad right through Bellville.
Is Halloween your favorite holiday of the year? If you love all things spooky, scary, and sensational, then there are few better places to be than Mansfield for the Halloween season this year. In addition to all of the local events going on throughout October to celebrate Halloween, Mansfield is home to one of the most stunning haunted "houses" in the entire country. The Ohio State Reformatory – a beautiful, historic prison loaded with stories from across the centuries – is the site of the annual "Escape from Blood Prison" haunted house. It's the perfect way to get your adrenaline flowing during the spooky season, and our REALTORS® have all of the haunted details on this popular, local event.
The Ohio State Reformatory was designed by architect Levi T. Schofield, with the first stones for the spectacular structure being laid in 1886. While you definitely won't find it on the list of Mansfield homes for sale, the Ohio State Reformatory did serve as a sort of home throughout its working life. The prison housed some of the most dangerous criminals in Ohio, and ghost stories were very common even before the prison became a well-known historic site.
If you're looking for the perfect house in a small town, you'll find it in Ohio among our Bellville homes for sale. As a local, you'll settle into a beautiful, affordable home in a quiet neighborhood. When you need fun and excitement, you can make an hour-long drive to Columbus, but you don't have to. Bellville residents enjoy art and culture venues, museums and wineries, and great places to shop, relax, and eat.
Our REALTORS® invite you to spend a weekend touring Bellville homes and getting to know our town. If you love trains, burgers or both, be sure to make a stop at the Buckeye Express Diner. It's an Ohio State Buckeye-themed restaurant serving homemade comfort food inside a pair of repurposed passenger train cars.
