Downtown Mansfield, inc. and Discover Historic Mansfield, Inc. are sister non-profit organizations that are working toward the preservation and revitalization of Historic Mansfield. DHM is the 501(6)(c) sibling and DMi is the 501(c)(3) sibling. Your donation to DMi is tax deductable. 
You may recognize DHM from some of our previous work. We brought these events and projects to you:
The Mansfield Music & Arts Festival, Wurstfest, the Hot Beats & Cold Brews festival series, the Mansfield 88 Painted Pianos project, Third Thursdays in Downtown, the giant water balloon fight at The Lot, CashMobs, and more. For a while, we operated the Farr Best Theater.  Fairly recently, the Arts Festival, Wurstfest and the Farr Best Theater have been handed off to the City.  

As incubators, DMi and DHM call a project or event a success when we can hatch the egg and watch the bird fly on its own.
