When the population of a town increases by more than 318 percent during a single decade — as Manor did between 2000 and 2010 — it is a sign that people are highly attracted to the town. In 2000, Manor, TX was a sleepy little town with approximately 1,200 people, but by 2010, over 5,000 people called it home. The 2016 estimate placed the population at over 8,400, proof that the town is continuing to grow at a brisk pace. New arrivals as well as long-time residents know that they can count on Alpha Roofing when they need the asphalt shingles replaced on their homes, new built-up roofs for their commercial buildings, their roofs repaired, metal roofs installed, roof maintenance programs, new siding, metal fabrication or new gutters.
Manor, TX | The History
European settlers began arriving in the vicinity of what is now the town of Manor as early as the 1850s. One of these early settlers was James Manor. He built his home on Gilleland Creek, and when a post office was established in his home in 1859, he became the postmaster of what was then called Grassdale. In 1871, the Houston and Texas Central Railway was building a link to Austin, so Manor donated land for a right-of-way. The next year, the town of Manor was platted and named.
Throughout most of the 20th century, Manor endured numerous challenges. Two fires devastated the business district, the boll weevil hurt cotton production and the area faced economic hardships during the Great Depression. The population remained below 1,000 until 1980, and growth was slow for the remainder of the century.
Manor’s amazing growth during the 21st century can be attributed to a variety of factors. The town is only 12 miles from the still-expanding capital city of Austin and lies on U.S. 290, a major highway connecting Houston to many towns in Central Texas. Manor is also located at an interchange of a toll road, SH130. Land is affordable, and the city has streamlined processes to encourage new development. All of these factors indicate that Manor will continue to grow during the coming decades.
