A Civil War Redoubt

— The Manassas Museum System —

This 11-acre historic park, part of the Manassas Museum System, contains one of only two surviving Civil War fortifications in the City of Manassas. The earthwork was built by Confederate troops in the Spring of 1861 as part of the Manassas Junction defenses, on the Hooe family farm, Mayfield.

The historic site contains the Mayfield house foundation and the Hooe family cemetery, as well as walking trails, interpretive markers, and reproduction cannon. Please proceed along the marked trails within the fenced area. In consideration of our neighbors in the Battery Heights Community, please park only in the historic site lot.

To learn more about Manassas and the Northern Virginia Piedmont, please visit The Manassas Museum at 9101 Prince William Street. During your stay, be sure to explore the military and cultural history of Old Town Manassas by picking up a Walking/Driving Tour guide at the Museum.

A 300-yard trail from the parking lot to the fort rises at a 3% grade. There is a water fountain at the top of the trail.
