laundry building at the county home (dayspring)
This is the last remaining Richland County building from the 1870s era, which once included the Courthouse, Jail, Infirmary, and Children's Home. All of these were brick with the banded stone pattern. I've posted this here for a link from the I Love Mansfield facebook page. This building, being north of the city and out of its industrial and coal-burning atmosphere is cleaner and brighter that the memories people have of the buildings in town.
