Discover a Rich History in Manor Park!
Historically, the area now known as Manor Country Club actually dates back to the 1700's when it was originally part of a large land grant of close to 5,000 acres, purchased by a wealthy store owner named John Bradford who lived in Charlestown, Maryland along the Patuxent River. The area became known as “Bradford's Rest.” A century later, a subdivision of this original acreage was purchased by Charles Abert, a distinguished lawyer of both Maryland and the District of Columbia, along with his wife, Constancia Bache Abert (who was the granddaughter of Benjamin Franklin's only daughter, Sarah.) The Aberts purchased 925 acres, and built a large “Manor home” at the center of it, on the highest point of land which had views of Sugarloaf Mountain. Their home was built of rock quarried from what is now the 11th hole of the Manor golf course, where there is now a small pond.
Eventually the Abert's home became known as the first “Manor Country Club,” founded by a group of investors known as the Forreston Manor Club, who had invested in the original land. The founders of this club recognized the value of the surrounding land, and that it would be an ideal location for a 27-hole golf course, which could also include tennis, swimming, and riding facilities to be enjoyed during the summer months as a getaway from the city of Washington. After incorporating the land and the surrounding area, they then referred to the area as the “Homestead,” and began to parcel out lots for purchase and development that would also come with a part-ownership to the Manor Club. The land was divided and sold, and owners began to build summer cottages on the lots, mainly using the homes as holiday escapes from the District. Many of the original cottage-style homes were designed by an architect named Charles Zeller, who was a member of the original Forreston Investor's Club. His own home was actually the first home built in Manor (after the Abert’s original Manor home); and was built on a prime location overlooking the golf course, where it still stands today. As one of the original Cotswold style tudors he designed, the home has many distinctive features, including a beautiful two-story picture window that overlooks the golf course, as well as tudor-like grand staircase at the center of the home, off of which are several rooms with pointed wood doorways, reminding one of a small English castle. The home also features a stone tudor fireplace in the living room, dark paneled walls, as well as ceiling beams and other details throughout, all distinctive of the English Tudor style. In addition it features a hand-painted mural of a fox chase in the dining room. Stationed in the Cotswold country of England during World War I, Mr. Zeller brought back plans for several different style English Cotswold cottages which he replicated and built in Manor, many of which share similar picture windows, as well as beams, dark paneling and stonework. Almost all of his original Cotswold-style homes still exist in Manor today, as part of this charming community. Unfortunately, the Abert’s original Manor home burned down in a fire in 1952, and could not be saved. In 1954, a more modern clubhouse was built to replace their home. Then, in the mid-1990's that clubhouse was completely renovated and redesigned, to what is now the present new building you see in the photos above.
The beautiful Manor Country Club stands at the center of this neighborhood, surrounded on all sides by the lushly planted golf course, flower beds, old oak trees and gracious pines, which contribute to its scenic park-like setting, for residents. The club provides wonderful activities and a feeling of community to its members, and Manor is a friendly neighborhood now enjoyed by many families as homeowners who never wish to leave!
