The Samuel S. Speers family built the Cranberry Manor in 1910.
The Speers were one of the early pioneer families in the Creston Valley, moving here in 1906, when Samuel opened a mercantile business. Mary Jane and Samuel had four children, Betty, Harold, Arthur, and Allan. Samuel was active in the Masonic Lodge, the Shrine Order of Eastern Star, school and hospital boards, dyking and agriculture, the war loans committee and the Red Cross. The family was very devoted and attended St. Stephen’s Presbyterian Church where Samuel was manager for several years. Mrs. Speers was a very active member of the church, the Women’s Missionary Society, and the Ladies Aid. She was also a devoted member of the Order of Eastern Star. During the war years, she was actively engaged with the Red Cross War work.
The Speers home was one of the first to boast indoor plumbing and toilets. All the members of the Speers family who resided in this grand home have since passed away.
The Ramseier family purchased the home and ran a boarding house for many years. There have been numerous owners since then, each adding their own personal touch. Now, at last, owners Tracy and Wayne Floer have restored the Manor to its former beauty.
They invite you to visit this historical and memorable home. Enjoy your stay in one of the beautifully restored guest rooms.
