A part of the Manassas Museum System, the Manassas Railroad Depot serves as the City’s Visitor Center and also contains the James and Marion Payne Railroad Heritage Gallery. This depot is the signature icon of Historic Downtown and was built in 1914. It is a working train station and home to the offices of Historic Manassas, Inc. (HMI), a Virginia Main Street organization. It's also a busy stop for daily Amtrak and Virginia Railway Express (VRE) commuter trains. VRE connects commuters and visitors with Washington, D.C. while the Amtrak line runs from Lynchburg through Manassas and connects the City to the entire country by rail.
