  • This is a hidden gem for civil war enthusiasts. This is one of only a few historic places where you get to interact with the site to bring history to life.  more »
  • Kevin did a great job of presenting the history of the house and it being taken over during the war as a hospital site. It’s not a big tour but informative and worth the visit.  more »

  • This site was incredibly informative and not the usual plantation experience. It was not the"Scarlet O'Hara, Gone With the Wind over the top plantation. It was more an average house on an average size plantation; made of field stone with nothing too fancy. More typical of the style found in Virginia. What made this experience so unique and worth the visit was this house had been used as a hospital for the Manassas Battle (Bull Run) that occurred just down the road. The house here is preserved as it would have been as a hospital. There are the surgeon's instruments on the operating table and the recovery rooms are furnished as they would have been during the battle and its aftermath. There is a slave quarters building and other structures of the time as well. The curators have done an incredible job with smells and sounds of a Civil War era hospital incorporated into tour; they are extremely knowledgeable about the history of the house, and surrounding lands, and the living conditions of the slaves who were there. This attraction is well worth the visit. See this in conjunction with the Manassas National Battlefield Park less than two miles away.
  • Pleasant spot to spend an hour or two enjoying the rich history of Manassas
