Honoring Our Past
Our logo includes a rooftop image to honor the history of our first location. Our building at 600 West Third Street in Mansfield was once the home of one of the community’s most prominent financial figures, Fred Thomas Bristor.
According to the Citizens Historical Association, in 1888, he became secretary of the Citizens Savings and Loan Company, later serving as president beginning in 1927. He was involved in a number of community organizations and Mansfield financial interests for 57 years before his death in 1945.
What started as a residential property once owned by one of Mansfield's prominent financial figures, Fred Thomas Bristor, has since become a health facility, now known as Third Street Family Health Services.
One might not suspect any historical significance if facing the north or east sides of the property (where the building was expanded). But the southwest corner, where much of the original property stands, points to a storied past, resembling that of a Tudor house.
Throughout its interior, some original features remain intact: pocket doors lead into a few of the employees' offices on the second floor; original flooring can be found in one of the utility closets; and the original house's fireplace is now situated in the billing department office.
