RICHLAND CO. - The Mansfield, Sandusky, and Newark Railroad began in 1846. It was taken over by The Baltimore and Ohio railway in 1869, four years after the Civil War ended. The Richland B&O Trail was the second in the country to use the Rails-To-Trail Act to develop the line into recreational space.
Planning began in 1986 and after years of construction, the Richland B&O was dedicated on October 7, 1995 and was the 700th rail-trail in the United States. The Richland County Parks District is celebrating its silver anniversary with events planned over the next couple of weeks.
