Facts for Renters
In 1803, the city was founded by Revolutionary War hero William Mason. He paid $1,700 at an auction and built what is now known as downtown Mason. After Mason's death, more acres of land were added to quickly growing community. Initially, the city was known as Palmyra.
In 1835, residents wanted to correct the town name and change the spelling. They discovered it was listed as Kirkwood after the area's postmaster, William Kirkwood. Once the residents learned that the state already had one Palmyra, they decided to change the name to Mason.
Mason was known as a small farming community for a very long time. However, more settlers arrived and the land was incorporated as a city in 1971.
Though it's a city, Mason still has small-town charm and often looks back on its humble beginnings. It now has a series of prosperous businesses and is home to some larger manufacturers such as Procter & Gamble.
