Manchester is a progressive rural community located between the large cities of Dubuque, Cedar Rapids, and Waterloo. They are mainly agriculturally based with a focus on education, families, and industry. Manchester has a small-town feel that is very community-driven. Family is important, and there are many different amenities for families to be engaged and build relationships. People here are hard-working and enjoy a slower pace of life. The White Water Park, Delaware County Fair, local State Park, and nearby Field of Dreams makes this a great place for people to visit but also raise a family.
