The wife and I stumbled upon this site while out driving around and decided to check it out. We were pleasantly surprised at how immersive the experience was visiting the building. Instead of the regular assortment of artifacts and info, this place goes above and...More

Had been to Manassas many time before and walked around the battlefield. Had never seen this site. Think of it as a field hospital for confederate soldiers. When first attracted were the heirloom roses, the largest collection in Northern Va.

We are so glad you enjoyed your visit, thank you for coming! The heirloom roses might bloom again this fall, but they always bloom mid May-early June.

This site is a very well done representation of a civil war field hospital, including simulated "odors" of the time. The tour guide is very informative and interesting. I recommend this site to anyone interested in civil war history.

This tour only costs 5 dollars and is worth much more. The plantation house is unique because it is staged not as the owners would have lived in it, but rather as it would have been when commandeered for use as a Confederate field hospital....More

5$ per person and it's worth it! The tours are given every hour on the hour. Parking lot is small, but plentiful, so you won't have to worry about parking. There is a rose garden and a couple small gardens on the property and depending...More

Anyone who wants to learn more about the Civil War--in many capacities--should go here. In addition to some placards on the grounds (mostly about the slave kitchen and outdoor facilities), the tour guides will likely give you HEAPS of info: weapons used, the house itself...More
