|Funny, that's what the other community said about its own|
|The doors of Manchester City Hall|
|The former Lyceum, now a city hall|
- The Manchester Spring which flowed to the nearby Grand Glaize Creek was next to the Lyceum. The spring is now covered.
- The Lyceum is also located nearby the first trading post site for Indians, which was between the Meramec and Missouri rivers.
- Other buildings that existed in the 19th century still stand today, along Manchester Road nearby the city hall.
- The first floor of the Lyceum was a marketplace, or at least a shop where many townspeople got what they needed. It also may have been used as a post office in its early years.
- The second floor was a large open space, which was like an auditorium or a theatre. A roller rink was enjoyed by the residents at one time, and 'talkie' pictures were shown on this floor during the Great Depression.
