Historical Marker
     A native of South Carolina who came to Texas in the 1850s, Ralph Sandiford Mann (1825-1907) was one of the founders of Mansfield. The town was named for Mann and his brother-in-law and business partner Julian Field. The two men operated a steam-powered grist mill that supplied grain to the Confederacy during the Civil War (1861-1865) and later to U.S. troops at Fort Belknap and Fort Griffin. Mann built the original log portion of this home for his family about 1866 and later added the brick rooms. He donated land for Mansfield Cemetery, where his grave is located. (1977)
