|Mansfield High School was one of many that was used during the time of segregation, and was used until the
opening of Mansfield Elementery/Middle School. At one time, a fire started inside the school, and the burn
marks are visible in the picture above. The fire supposedly killed a few of the students that were in summer
school, as well as two janitors. The school does have a basement, but its flooded out.
As an unfortunate update, the Mansfield School has been demolished to make way for the expansion of
Highway 171. I hate to break the news, but in the mean time, Google Maps still has not updated apparently so
the 2 above pictures are snapshot I took from Street View. They're kind of blurry, but I think they will work.
Thanks to Matt for the info and pictures
