The Manning House had many amenities for its time, including a stable and the city's first private swimming pool. When Claire Schnaufer grew up there in the 1930s and 1940s, ÒWe had an Arabian stallion over there, a horse, a cow, chickens and peacocks. We had palm trees, cottonwood trees and a walnut tree outside. We had two goldfish ponds. We had a cook, a maid, a laundress and a chauffeur.Ó
