One of the best parts of visiting Manassas is exploring the City’s architecture reflecting its 19th-century heritage.

During the Civil War, two opposing presidents – Jefferson Davis and Abraham Lincoln – visited Liberia while meeting with their generals when it served as headquarters in 1861 for Confederates and in 1862 for the Union.

In 1972, Stephen Stills – of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – helped form the band, Manassas. As a Civil War buff, Stills orchestrated this photo shoot at the historic Manassas train depot for the album cover of the same name.
