Shawshank Trail: Brooks wondered through the downtown area of Mansfield when he was released from prison . . . enjoying life on the outside. As you enter the Historic Carrousel District, a little more than halfway up Main St. on the left side of the street, look for Carrousel Antiques. One of their windows was the window that Red looked through at the compass that would help him find the Oak Tree.  You can also walk around the same area in The Historic Carrousel District.
