Manor is located about 12 miles northeast of Austin. It has been ranked the 7th fastest growing suburb in America and the 20th best small suburb in the entire United States. It was incorporated as a town in 1913 and a general law city in 1921 but grew very slowly for most of the 20th century.
In 2000, the population was 1,200 and grew to 14,000 by 2019. The city of Manor was the first government agency in the United States to deploy QR codes to disseminate information to residents and visitors.
The Hollywood film, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, was filmed in Manor and former President Barack Obama visited the Manor New Technology High School as part of his jobs and opportunities tour.
Median home values are about $200,000, which makes Manor an attractive option for first-time home buyers.
