OTHER INFORMATION

Richland County is known for its rich and productive soil. The early settlers were Pennsylvanians of German origin and Scotch-Irish Presbyterians.

Mansfield, the county seat, was named for Colonel Jared Mansfield who was sent by President Thomas Jefferson to Ohio to correct land survey mistakes. Mansfield today is a busy industrial and trade center. It is the seat of a branch of the Ohio State University and is also known for its year-round recreational program.

Clerk of Courts has divorce & civil court records from 1815.
