The killing of local shopkeeper Levi Jones stirred rumors of an
impending Indian attack. Mansfield's settlers needed help.
On the evening of August 9. 1813, Johnny Appleseed is believed
to have embarked from here on a daring overnight journey to
the settlements of Clinton and Mount Vernon for reinforcements.

At the time of Appleseed's run, this square was the site
of two blockhouses erected during the War of 1812. One
blockhouse, constructed of round logs by a Captain Scheeffer
of Fairfield County, stood at the intersection of Main Street
and Park Avenue West. Colonel Charles Williams of Coshocton
built the other blockhouse of hewn logs. It was located in
the middle of the north side of the square and later served
as Mansfield's first courthouse.
