Hedding [†] is a hamlet on Old York Road in northwestern Mansfield. The community had several names, including the name still on the sign at the corner of Old York Road and Hedding Road Three Tuns. A tun was a barrel, used to transport and store beer. The Hedding Methodist Episcopal Church was built in 1847; it was named after Elijah Hedding, a Methodist Episcopal Bishop. Immediately after the church was built, the area was renamed Hedding, which in 1920 became the official name.
