Annaburg Manor

— Grand Summer Home —

Prussian-born Robert Portner, Alexandria brewer and businessman, built Annaburg in 1892 as his show place summer home and escape from the city. It became the center of beauty and interest with 35 rooms, electricity, and reportedly, one of the first homes in the country equipped with mechanical air conditioning, of his own invention.

Twenty landscaped acres and a park of luxurious trees, some of which still stand, surrounded the house. The 2,000-acre estate included a deer park, fountains, a greenhouse, swimming pool, and the 1825 Liberia Plantation. The grounds were a year round retreat for residents of Manassas. The original gatehouse (pictured at right), now a private residence, stands one block west of here at the corner of Portner Avenue and Main Street.
