A home on Walnut Street in Mansfield is looking to become designated as an historic property. The reason is to receive a tax credit, as the owner is hoping to turn it into an apartment. 

 The building is located at 159 Walnut St. and is a Gothic revival house built in the 1860’s.  Mansfield Council did approve and add the home to the list of historic properties in the city.  The owner can now move forward to apply for state income tax credits.
