About San Manuel
Originally, San Manuel was a mining community with its booming copper mines to the north and in-town smelter. It was established in 1953 and master-planned by Del E. Webb Construction Co. for the mining company with homes built by M.O.W Aldon Construction. The neighborhoods are precisely laid out in an array of quaint midcentury-modern and ranch style homes and there are several shopping centers.
Today, San Manuel makes a nice family, retirement, snowbird or commuter location with affordable real estate and rentals. Bring in a business! There are commercial properties available.
