It is named for Orlando Harrison Manning, a Lieutenant Governor of Iowa.HistoryPrior to the city's formation, the area of Manning was a swampy region occasionally used by local Iowa (people) for hunting. There were no nearby rivers and few trees.The Iowa Southwestern, was completed in 1880. Some yards and a depot were constructed at the future location of Manning, in the summer of 1881. In 1881 the Chicago, Milwaukee, and St. Paul Railroad; also constructed a road across Iowa, south of and parallel to, the Northwest. These railroads intersected at what is now Manning.In 1969, an unknown saboteur used dynamite to bomb one of the rails and derail the passenger train traveling on the east——west Milwaukee railroad line (presently the Burlington Northern) hoping that it would careen into the Nishnabotna river below (fortunately the train came to a safe stop but not until after it derailed). The crime was never solved and no group ever claimed responsibility and no motive for the bombing was ever discovered.GeographyManning is located at , along the West Nishnabotna River near its source.According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 2.50sqmi, of which, 2.49sqmi is land and 0.01sqmi is water.
