History Center Newsletter

Harry Edward Swain, better known as Hack Swain, was not a local boy, but he made his mark in our town. I don’t know what brought Hack to town initially, but he married Rachel Matthews, a 1922 graduate of Mansfield High School. Before 1934 he had established Mr. Swain’s Children’s ¬†Band with uniforms, instruments, the whole works.

Our objective is to collect, present, and preserve the objects, histories, and photos of our area's people, places and events, so that we can know and understand the lives of our community predecessors - neighbors we never met.

We also record events and people of our own time so that future
community members can know us a little better.

It's all about the Flow of Time.
