Something for Everyone in Mansfield
Between Dallas and Fort Worth just south of Highway 287 is Mansfield, an affluent suburban community in Texas. Mansfield has been included on CNN and Money Magazine’s annual list of “Best Places to Live in America.” It ranked in the top 100 on the list for 2007, 2009, 2012, and 2014. Mansfield is continuously growing to meet its influx of new residents and companies who set up offices in the city. Since it’s close to both Dallas and Fort Worth, job opportunities abound. Some of the top employers in the city include Mouser Electronics, Klein Tools, Kroger, and Walmart.
A Rich History in Mansfield
Mansfield was first settled in the 1840s by pioneer farmers from the southern states. Sawmills, gristmills, general stores, churches, and schools were established by the turn of the century, as the population grew to 1,000 residents. After Mansfield was incorporated in 1909, the population fluctuated over the following decades as more residents settled in the area and businesses were founded.
Fun fact: In 1956, the Mansfield school district was the first in Texas to receive a federal court order for racial integration. The Mansfield school desegregation incident then occurred, where over 300 white citizens protested the enrollment of 3 black students at Mansfield High School. The incident was the first example of failure to enforce desegregation of a public school, and it was followed by a similar situation in Little Rock, Arkansas the next year. The school district quietly desegregated in 1965, and has changed much for the better today.
Life in Modern-Day Mansfield
Mansfield Independent School District today has over 40 quality schools with an enrollment of about 35,000 students. In addition to many traditional elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools, Mansfield offers a STEM academy, a career and technology academy, and an early college high school. The district has an A rating by Texas schools, performing well in student achievement, school progress, and individual student performance.
Mansfield is often described as family-friendly, thanks to its frequent city events like annual art fairs, music festivals, and holiday parades. There are plenty of places to shop and dine in historic downtown Mansfield. Outdoor lovers will enjoy Elmer W. Oliver Nature Park, with 80 acres of nature sightseeing, trails, fishing ponds, and picnic areas. When the family needs to cool off from the Texas heat, Hawaiian Falls off Heritage Parkway has something for everyone: water slides, rides, wave pools and lazy rivers.
