When you ask someone from Lufkin or Nacogdoches,  "Where is Manning, Texas?" they will say, "Never heard of it". That is unless the people are over 80. They might remember a time that the small town between Lufkin and Huntington had around 1,500 residents. Back in the day it was a sawmill town, and Lufkin was the only town in Angelina County that was larger.

So now that you know Manning exists, you have to go. I mean, there will be fireworks and lots of Christmas lights. I'm down for sure.
