    Would love to see the interior!

    I’d love to see these places actually functioning again! People are in love with history right now. I do believe it could work! :)

  3. Sharon Klemm says:

    What is the plan for future use? I agree with Marcia, would love to see the interior. Would be great if it reopened as a hotel, it is really hard to find a place to stay when traveling to North Dakota.

    Paint does wonders! Even if the inside isn’t fixed up, the outside image is outstanding! Kudos to those who took the initiative and the work involved!

    I was born in Harvey and raised in Manfred for around 13 years. My dad managed the elevator that is not torn down for years. I lived in the house across from the old post office/bank that was and old doctors house.

    Hi Troy – thanks for posting this. My late father in law Chris Anhorn owned and operated the hotel from about 1924 – 1930. He established a lunch coumter and pool hall there. I would love to know if anyone has images of Manfred from that time period. Judy
