Established in 1971 to Preserve Mansfield's
Natural Resources for Future Generations

June 29, 2016

The Natural Resources Trust of Mansfield (NRT) announces the release of “This Old Town”, “Bringing Mansfield’s Past to Life”, a book by Mansfield historian Harry Chase. This Old Town contains over 160 stories of Harry’s best Mansfield News columns plus annotations and pictures. There are chapters on Harry’s memories of Mansfield as a youth, Mansfield people, trains and trolleys, the Great Woods, nature, and of course this old town. All arranged in an easy to read format.

The stories and pictures were compiled by NRT president Lou Andrews with the help of NRT directors Jane Sheehan and John Southard. Many pictures were provided by the Mansfield Historical Society, thanks to Kevin McNatt. Mansfield News Editor Donna Whitehead aided by supplying articles from the News archives. The book was printed in part with grants from the Mansfield Non-profit Gift Fund and the NRT.

Books will be available at the upcoming Downtown Family Night NRT table on July 12th. You may reserve a book by clicking here.
