The booming city of Mansfield straddles three counties, Johnson, Tarrant, and Ellis, and sits in the southern portion of the Dallas-Fort Worth region. Via U.S. 287, residents have quick access to I-20, for a quick trip to sporting events and shopping in Dallas, the museum district of Fort Worth, or the entertainment and theme parks of Arlington. The prospering community that had grown up around the Man and Feild mill took on the name of "Mansfeild." Repeated misspellings over the years resulted in the acceptance of the conventional spelling of "Mansfield."
Its booming population (growing from an estimated 38,000 in mid-2005 to roughly 50,000 in 2006) makes Mansfield a dynamic community to live, work, and raise a family in. It's certainly a long way from the rural farming community it was just 150 years ago, when R.S. Man and Julian Feild built a grist mill at the crossroads that was to become the center of modern-day Mansfield.
The city now offers more than 240 acres of beautiful parkland, a historic downtown area, and excellent public schools. Students living in the Tarrant County portion of Mansfield, as well as most of those living in the Johnson County portion, are served by the Mansfield Independent School District, with the remainder being served by Midlothian Independent School District.
According to the 2000 census, the median household income in Mansfield was $66,764 and the median home value was $127,200. Residential availability ranges from under $200,000 and going to more than $1 million for spacious custom estates.
