Central Park Historic District, Mansfield
Park Avenue West, Mansfield
An amazing cluster of National Register listed properties in various states of repair stand silently along what was once tree-lined streets. There are too many glorious examples of American architecture, including several homes designed by William Barber, to pick a favorite. While you are there, make sure to visit Kingwood Center Gardens, the 47 acre estate built in 1926 for Mr. and Mrs. Charles Kelley King, which has an entrance on Park Ave. West. We would like to thank founding member and resident History Captain Lacy Bessette for her work documenting “PAW”.
The Boulevards Historic District, Mansfield
Sherman’s Estate Historic District, Mansfield
Woodland Neighborhood, Mansfield
The residential area known as Woodland was developed by James Dickson from the land of the Old Stewart Farm in the 1920’s. Meant as a “dignified community of highly civilized citizens” it once featured a lovely spring fed sunken garden in it’s center, behind his home in the triangle formed by Andover Road, the aptly named Stewart Lane and Dickson Parkway. After Mr. Dickson’s passing in 1949, the gardens were unfortunately removed, replaced with a well designed apartment building and a personal favorite mid-century modern home among others.
Woodland is blessed with cohesiveness while featuring differing architectural styles and a blend of very large as well as smaller and multi-family homes from its inception, a sort of very early progressive mixed-income experiment still thriving and being enjoyed today. The Westinghouse “Home of Tomorrow” located at 895 Andover, and amenities including the Woodland Club Pool, founded in 1928 (which you can join regardless of where you call home) walkability to the Mansfield Art Center and the new YMCA are some of the highlights.
