mansonThe City of Manson was built upon the site of the Manson Impact Structure, the largest known meteorite crater in the United States.  The crater, measuring more than 23 miles in diameter, was created when a meteorite crashed into earth some 74 million years ago.  The crater now sits approximately 200 feet below the City of Manson.  Although the crater is not visible today, the impact of the meteor significantly changed the geography of the area.  As a result, the City of Manson was known for years as the “soft water capital of the world”.
