Inscription. Ignacio Manjarres was a rancher in Florence as early as 1898 when a brand was registered in his name with the county. He was a charter member of the Pinal County Cattle Growers Association. At various times he raised sheep and pigs, fruit trees and vegetables. In 1910, Manjarres bought a large lot and built this L-shaped adobe house on it. He built his 3-foot thick walls on the property line, typical for Florence. He wanted to make extra room for his large wood-hauling wagons to be able to turn around. Additions were added as the family grew, changing the home's original dimensions.
