John "Appleseed" Chapman is considered one of Richland County's
original pioneers. In the summer of 1809. Chapman arrived in the
Mansfield area just as Mansfield's first town lots were being
offered for sale. Chapman purchased town lot 265 for $120 from
Henry H. Wilcoxen. Wilcoxen served as Richland County Sheriff
from 1820 to 1825. Chapman later sold the lot to Jesse Edgington
on October 30, 1818 for $100.

During the War of 1812, approximately two blocks west of this site, members of the Delaware
Indian tribe were encamped in a ravine southwest of the public
square. After being removed by military force and their village
burned, the Delaware were en route from their village in Greentown
to the Council at Piqua under Colonel Samuel Kratzer.
