We are Manning, Iowa and we are a proud progressive community.
From the cultivated rows of local agriculture to our brick-lined Main Street, we have a deep-rooted history of thinking ahead, stepping up to the plate, and getting things done…together. And that is refreshing.
Manning is a West Central Iowa community whose residents care for one another and welcome newcomers…it is a natural part of our DNA. Manning is not only something to see, but something to live…to breathe…to experience. Whether watching our Wolves compete, shopping at our locally-owned businesses, worshipping freely together, or coming together to support friends in need, Manning is a true community…where neighbors are family and a handshake is a promise…this is our way of life. And that is refreshing.
Manning is proud of our heritage...and of the people it has forged us to become. We are humble, with a considerable vision and the stubborn determination to accomplish what we set our minds to…whether supporting a new, modern, community-owned hospital or the transplant of a 400-year-old Hausbarn from a world away. This heritage thrives yet today in a 24-hour recreation center, lush community parks, a vibrant downtown, exceptional commercial expansion potential, and through the young families moving back to fill our neighborhoods. Manning is a terrific place to call home with a unique vision and innovative way of thinking. And that is refreshing.
We invite you to be our guest…visit…come live...and you'll see why we say, “Manning, Iowa…It’s Refreshing.”
With each new, larger fire truck, the need for a new fire station becomes more evident. Plans are complete for the new Emergency Services building that will be located near the corner of Highway 141 and West Street. The facility is expected to be complete by the early part of 2015.
