A plaque commemorates the proclamation of the Shire of Mansfield in 2002. 

The Shire of Mansfield was a local government area about 185 kilometres (115 mi) northeast of Mebourne, the state capital of Victoria, Australia.  The shire covered an area of 3,919.10 square kilometres (1,513.2 sq mi), and existed from 1865 until 1994. Mansfield became a shire on the 31 December 1866. On 18 November 1994, the Shire was abolished, and merged with the City and Shire of Benalla and the Warrenbayne district of  Shire of Violet Town into the Shire of Delatite. In 2002 the Delatite Shire was abolished, and a new Shire of Mansfield was created with largely the same territory.
