Blockhouse marker Rededication

The national president of the U.S. Daughters of 1812 Society, in Mansfield on Friday for the group’s rededication of the city’s 200-year-old blockhouse, was noticeably impressed by the sturdy structure.

“It’s a compliment to Mansfield that you’ve taken such good care of this blockhouse all of these years,” Virginia Apyar said during the ceremony in South Park.

Getting the historic structure into the fine shape it’s in today, however, took some doing over many years — centuries, actually.

The blockhouse, originally located in Mansfield’s public square, was one of two built in the city during the War of 1812 as a refuge from Indians, who were stirred up by the conflict.

There were several other blockhouses scattered around Richland County then, too, in places like Bellville, Butler and Plymouth, but any traces of those structures are long gone.

Friday’s event was in observance of the bicentennial of the war, but also fell during the bicentennial of the county’s founding.

The Mansfield blockhouse, which over the years was used as a jail, courthouse, church and meeting place for a Boy Scout troop, was moved to its present location in South Park in 1929.

“During 1908’s Mansfield centennial it was decided it was time to preserve some of the city’s history,” said Sunda Peters, chairperson of the Mansfield Blockhouse Completion Committee. Peters also is an honorary state president of the Ohio chapter of the Daughters of 1812 Society.

Original logs from an 1812-era log cabin belonging to farmer James Cunningham were used in 1908 to replace others in the blockhouse that had deteriorated. Yet another restoration was in order by the time Mansfield’s bicentennial rolled around in 2008.

“We had to finish this job,” Peters said. “I didn’t do any work on the roof myself.”

Community volunteer Kevin Wapner did, along with several other workers.

“We made the shakes (shingles) for the roof and then we put on the roof,” he said. “The windows that are in it the Scout troops put in back in the 1950s.”

A new stairway and new floors also were put in during the 2008 restoration.

“It’s incredibly solid. It’ll last another 200 years,” Wapner said.
