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 built by Del E. Webb Construction Co. and M.O.W. Homes Inc. for the mining company. 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 to buy or rent.
