History of Manor
During the community's early history, grain, cottonseed and cotton were the staple crops that were shipped from Manor.
The area was named after James Manor, the postmaster of the community. Previously, Manor had a post office named Grassdale, and another post office was opened called Gregg after Grassdale became defunct. James Manor ran both of these post offices.
The number of inhabitants and residents decreased during the Great Depression.
The Houston and Texas Central Railway was constructed in 1871. This gave renters of Manor easy access to goods and commodities.
The city's motto is "Come Grow with Us."
