This landmark stands as not only the grandest in Manassas but one of the largest and best preserved Folk Victorians I’ve ever seen. Its size is truly awe-inspiring. According to Lisa Hearne, it was built by the namesake of Manassas himself, Manassas Foy and was purchased in the late 1800s by her great-great grandmother, Eliza Ann Collins Hodges and her husband. Mrs. Hodges was a descendant of the Collins family for whom the nearby town of Collins was named. There are even more notable structures in Manassas but I didn’t have the time to shoot them yesterday. I will certainly be back and encourage photographers in the area to explore Manassas and vicinity when they have the opportunity.

Since the rail line was run through Manassas by the Savannah & Western Railroad in the 1880s, I presume the depot is most likely contemporary to that date. The line is now operated by Georgia Central.
