About San Manuel
San Manuel, Arizona originally was housing for its booming copper mines to the north and in-town smelter. The community was established in 1953 and master-planned by Del E. Webb Construction Co. for the mining company with construction assisted by M.O.W. Homes Inc. It is laid out in an array of midcentury-modern and ranch style homes and several shopping centers.
