Rebuilding Manassas

— A Spirit of Optimism —

When the Civil War ended, newcomers and residents rebuilt the burned and devastated landscape around this vital railroad junction. The resulting town of Manassas, incorporated in 1873, quickly became the transportation and commercial hub of Prince William County.

After a devastating 1905 fire, optimistic Manassas citizens rebuilt the town again. The town council required that buildings erected in the central business district be constructed of brick, stone, or concrete. Most of the prominent Renaissance Revival and Colonial Revival commercial buildings located in Old Town were built around 1906, including the Old Post Office (9113 Center St.), the Conner Building (9102 Center St.), and the Hibbs & Gidding store (9129 Center St.).
