Mansfield Historically And Today
Nestled in the heart of eastern Connecticut, Mansfield occupies a 45 square mile plot of land. Since 1881 it was home to the Storrs Agricultural School, now the University of Connecticut. Mansfield's residents are blessed with tremendous cultural opportunities due to the sprawling university campus. UConn is one of the largest employers in eastern Connecticut, thus employment abounds for those qualified. Over the years, the town has purchased and preserved land, developing beautiful parks and hiking trails for the public to utilize. The active recreation department maintains facilities and programs tailor made for the town's diverse interests. Local architectural designs include spacious colonial homes, modern designs and eye catching condos and apartments. All options are set on stunning farmlands, spacious wooded lots and verdant hills. Continuing education for adults is provided by the local public schools. Children can attend elementary and middle school at local facilities and high school at E.O. Smith High, in the Storrs section of town, part of the Regional School District 19.
