I really enjoyed the tour of this wonderful piece of history in Manassas. I particularly liked the way it was set up as an old hospital. It was very interesting and it is well preserved. The staff is very knowledgeable.

House is amazing and in excellent condition. This was used for a hospital at one time. A small building is also there that used to house slaves also in excellent condition. Did not get a chance to do into the house, no one was around. The Rose Garden needs some work.

If you love to tour historic homes, this is a beauty with their fabulously tended rose gardens. You can almost hear the ghosts of residents past.

Was closed in the early morning when I visited. Information kiosk with pamphlets told the story of the building and how it was a hospital during the battles of Bull Run/Manassas. Would have liked to vist inside. Hopefully on another trip.

Catch this site on a Thursday - Saturday, when the red flag is posted outside the entrance. That signals the the interior is open for touring. The home exterior is attractive, but it was the rose garden that stole the show for me. I have never held rose blossums from a rose bush planted prior to 1781. But this rose... More

I'd take my elementary class to visit although it is small. The new young guide was doing the best she could...I was her 2nd tour ever!

This small house is a gem. If you like history, and are interested in medicine, it is a must. Our guide, Mr. B. Backus was knowledgeable about this house, and naturally helpful in answering our questions, when he knew the answers [We have a way of stumping tour guides with our inquisitiveness.]. The house was used as a hospital, and... More

Large manor house (named Ben Lomond after a place in Scotland) was built in the 1830'a by the Chin family. It is a typical Federal style manor/plantation style house, but what makes it of interest is the role it played during the Civil War. The Chin family has leased it out to the Pringle during the period surrounding the Civil... More
