The city was established in 1854, when Julian Feild and Ralph Sandiford Mann constructed a grist mill near the Mansfield crossroads. The town probably started in the oak groves that abutted Walnut Creek, originally called Cedar Bluff Creek. The first Presbyterian church in the town was organized in 1854, but meeting in homes was still unusual. In the early 1900s, the community was known as the Cedar Bluff Congregation of Mansfield.
In the early 1850s, the city’s area was largely settled. Eight related families moved to the area from Illinois. Three Gibson brothers settled near Mansfield and established a community that was named after them. In 1860, the area was incorporated as the Gibson Community. The City Council hired a manager, and the mayor was elected to a three-year term by the voters. This elected board also delegates responsibilities to the city manager. click now
