Katie Hooe House & Tudor Hall

— A New Village —

The Kate Hooe House at 8920 Quarry Road is the only known building in the historic district believed to date from the pre-Civil War period, when Manassas was a small village at the junction of two railroad lines. This wood frame house contains a rear ell, constructed of logs, that was used as housing for railroad workers.

Just east of this spot stood the early 19th century farm dwelling Tudor Hall, (later structure pictured at right), which gave its name to the train stop and post office established here in 1851 for the Orange & Alexandria Railroad. The name Tudor Hall continued to be used into the early 1860s, and was replaced with Manassas Junction and finally Manassas.
