Bissman Building (7).JPG

MANSFIELD -- The Bissman Building on North Main Street adds a unique, albeit eerie, element to downtown.

Engineered and constructed by the same contractors as the Ohio State Reformatory in 1886, the Gothic Romantic structure was home to the Bissman family's wholesale grocery distribution center up until the mid 1970s.

Now the 130-year-old building serves as the headquarters of Pirate Printing, a Bissman family-owned printing and embroidery business.

It's also host to history tours and ghost walks, giving visitors the chance to hear hair-raising stories of the past while moving about the 50,000 square-foot edifice.
