Mansfield Area Chamber of Commerce 8 History The first wave of settlers arrived in the rolling Cross Timbers country of north central Texas in the 1840s. These pioneer farmers came, following the frontier as it shifted west of the Mississippi. They entered an area where Indians had been living for thousands of years. The roving bands of Comanche’s posed a serious threat to the settlers, and in 1849, the U.S. Army established Fort Worth to protect the farms along the sparsely populated frontier. The area southwest of the fort (and the Trinity River) was well protected and presumably fairly well settled by the early 1850s. In 1853, Ralph S. Man and Julian Feild came to this area from South Carolina and Virginia, respectively. They arrived in Fort Worth where they were involved in business ventures including, a general store and a grist mill. Julian Feild also became involved in many community activities. But in about 1858, they saw an opportunity to provide a grist mill in a promising agricultural area just a few miles southeast of Fort Worth. They came to the area and constructed a gristmill on the land that is now the southwest corner of East Broad Street and South Main Street. The mill started operation about 1860. Mr. Field purchased a 540 acre tract of land across from the mill, and on this site he built and operated a general store. He also built a log house near the store which served as lodging for the mill customers and other travelers. By 1860, the nucleus of the community and a point of commerce had been formed around the mill location. Meal and flour produced by the mill were delivered by ox-drawn wagon trains as far east as Shreveport, Louisiana, and as far north as Jefferson, Missouri. The prospering community which had grown up and around the Man and Feild mill took on the name of “Mansfeild,” a combination of the names of the founders. Repeated misspellings over the years resulted in acceptance of the conventional spelling of “Mansfield.” The prospering community, which had grown up and around the Man and Feild mill, took on the name of “Mansfeild”
mansfieldchamber.org 9 History In 1867, the city fathers invited the Reverend, Dr. John Collier to come to Mansfield and establish an educational facility for the community. Dr. Collier agreed if the city would provide him housing and register and plat the city. The city was platted in 1870 and in that same year, Dr. Collier opened the Mansfield Male/Female College. It was one of the earliest co-educational colleges in Texas. Until its closing in 1889, it was the best-known educational institution in north central Texas. With its stable economic base, newly established fame as a seat of learning, and a land survey which facilitated the selling of parcels, Mansfield enjoyed steady growth, increasing in population of 249 in 1880, and topping 400 by 1890. Many of the new families were fleeing reconstruction in the south and attempting a new start in Texas. J.H. Wright, for example, arrived from Missouri in 1873 and played a central role in Mansfield’s development for the next 70 years. The major event of the 1880s was the arrival of the railroad. Chartered in 1885, the first train of the Fort Worth & New Orleans Railroad ran through Mansfield between Fort Worth and Waxahachie in 1886. A small group of Mansfield citizens raised funds and contributed the right-of-way as an inducement to the railroad. This action in a town of 300 residents shows the effort of Mansfield to bring the railroad through their town rather than other towns nearby. The railroad was an important means of commerce and transportation for the community for many years. With the popularity of the automobile for travel, after the war, and with the use of trucking for freight, the railroad became more of a heavy freight mover and did not stop in Mansfield. The station finally closed in 1953. Mansfield was incorporated in 1890 with a population of 418. By 1900, the population of Mansfield was stabilized at about 700. Over the next 40 years the number of inhabitants would fluctuate around this figure, reaching as high as 774 in 1940. Major public improvements were undertaken and utilities were installed for the first time beginning in 1904. In 1905, the first telephone lines were installed. About this time, concrete and brick sidewalks were laid along Main Street. An electric light plant was built in 1917–18, and the first electric street lights were installed on Main Street. Improvements to the water system were made. The next major public improvement occurred in 1926, when the city constructed a sewer system. That same year, Mansfield was supplied with natural gas. The population of Mansfield was 1375 in 1960. It was a sleepy little town for a few more years but then it started to grow. An industrial park created business opportunities and businesses started moving to the area. In 1980, the population was 8,100. In 2000, it was up to 28,000. The schools were getting a good reputation for learning. People were moving here for the schools and to live and work in the metroplex. In the last fifteen years, it has more than doubled again to where we are today—over 70,000 people.

mansfieldchamber.org 21 Education Tarrant County College Seeds for the Tarrant County College Southeast Campus were sown in the late 1980s, some three decades after the community college was initially established. It was built approximately 15 miles east of TCC’s original campus during an era of explosive growth in the southeastern sector of Tarrant County. The same can-do spirit of the 1960s that drove Fort Worth leaders to band together to address the needs of their citizenry arose again. Founding organizers were driven by economic and social challenges, while supporters of a fourth campus were motivated by the rapid population growth beyond its immediate service area. Their critical concern was embedded in a fundamental tenant that first brought the College into existence: a college education, accessible and convenient. It was a caveat as important to Fort Worth leaders as broadening the country’s educational scope beyond the elite and provided workers with the skills to meet the needs of a changing economy. Just as voters first sanctioned TCC as Tarrant County Junior College by the overwhelming passage of a bond package in 1965, their response at the ballot box in 1992 with the passage of a bond made Southeast Campus a reality. Passing the fourth bond election allowed the College to fund the building of the campus, make additions to the other three campuses and spend $3.1 million on a new computer system. Voters addressed the need that had become apparent when the combined population of the two largest cities in the area— Arlington and Mansfield—had jumped from 94,311 in 1970 to 181,720 in 1990. The timing was right as the wait on the partial completion of Texas State Highway 360, south of Interstate 20, was over, providing access to the 123-acre tract that had been purchased in 1987. Opening its doors in 1996 as TCJC Southeast Campus, Southeast Campus dropped the “J” three years later, along with its sister campuses, when the trustees voted to change the College’s name from Tarrant County Junior College to Tarrant County College, reflecting the school’s exponential growth in size and course offerings. Designed for about 5,000 students, Southeast Campus opened with an enrollment of 3,993 students. It soon became the second largest of the four campuses, just four years after opening its doors. It is a rank that Southeast continues to hold today, with a fall 2017 enrollment of 12,843, 24 percent of the College’s enrollment. The hard work its faculty and staff diligently pours into cultivating a college-going culture in its neighboring communities benefits the entire College. Major cities in its service area—Arlington, Grand Prairie
Mansfield Area Chamber of Commerce 22 Education and Mansfield—consistently contribute the largest number of new student enrollments on all TCC campuses. These enrollments are paramount because they translate into future graduates. The number of TCC graduates in 2017 grew by nearly 15 percent to 8,887 degrees and certificates from 6,590 the previous year. In 2016, Community College Week ranked TCC fifth in the nation among ALL community colleges for the number of associate degrees awarded. The College also ranked ninth among all colleges and universities in the nation that confer associate degrees. To accommodate its share of the growth, Southeast transformed some of its parking spaces in 2011 into a nearly $27 million Science and Academic Building. The 114,519-square-foot addition allowed classrooms for computer science, speech and laboratory sciences. The expansion provided additional office space and meeting areas including areas for student organizations and the Student Activities Office. Southeast Campus is the home of TCC’s thriving Hospitality Management program; the only accredited dietetic technician program in Texas and a premier Culinary Arts program. Started in 2001, the program’s graduates serve up dishes in some of the most popular restaurants in Tarrant and Dallas counties. The program recently expanded the number of students eligible to enter the profession by expanding its dual credit offerings in collaboration with Arlington Independent School District, the latest partnership between the two. Four years ago, the two joined forces to open the Arlington Collegiate High School. It already was recognized as a Title I Reward School for 2015–2016, one of only 160 campuses statewide to receive this recognition. The recognition was based on reading and math performance, and being a “reward school” means that Arlington Collegiate High School boasts the highest graduation rates. It will graduate its first class of high school students earning their associate degree before receiving their high school diploma. They will join graduates from TCC’s five other Early College High Schools. Since its first 11 graduates in 2014, TCC has graduated 251 ECHS students. Southeast also has broadened its alliance with longtime educational partner Mansfield ISD with the opening of TCC SE Mansfield ISD Early College High School (ECHS) at Timberview. Its mission is to develop scholars, thoughtful leaders and engaged citizens to graduate with a high school diploma and an associate degree. This is just an example of how TCC Southeast, along with as its five sister campuses, serves a wide range of students, from single moms to corporate executives and men and women of all ages who are seeking new career opportunities. Many students have full-time jobs and family responsibilities, so classes are offered at flexible times including online. With an eye always open to expanding educational opportunities, the Southeast Campus Sustainability Committee launched the initial steps to expand the opportunities for cross-disciplinary studies. The newly installed aquaponics system can teach lessons in sustainability, environment science, horticulture and beyond. Other campus sustainability projects include its two-year-old Community Garden, worked by students, faculty and staff. A Farmer’s Market is held once each semester to raise funds to sustain the garden. In addition, the Sustainability Committee acquired 60,000 bees and harvested its first honey during the summer of 2017. These creative initiatives planted in the field of knowledge will be joined by others as TCC Southeast continues to flourish in southern Tarrant County. Southeast Campus is the home of TCC’s thriving Hospitality Management program; the only accredited dietetic technician program in Texas and a premier Culinary Arts program.
