Manor



In the rich soil of the blackland prairie, just a dozen miles from the state capitol, stands the City of Manor. The city was named for James B. Manor, who was born in 1804 and was one the earliest settlers of Travis County. His family had known Sam Houston for many years back in Tennessee and in 1832 Manor came with Houston to Texas. In 1836 Manor settled on Gilleland Creek just west of present day downtown Manor while Texas was in its earliest days of the Republic. He cleared the land and constructed a log home on the east bank.
