Explore historic Manassas cemetery by the light of a lantern

Stories in Stone, a walking tour by twilight of the historic Manassas City Cemetery, will be held on May 19, at 6:30 p.m.  The cemetery across from Prince William County’s present Judicial Center in Old Town Manassas is the final resting place of many prominent citizens who helped shape the early years of Manassas. A Congressional Medal of Honor winner and members of the famed Civil War Prince William Cavalry are buried there as well.

Their stories, and many more, will come to life during a Manassas Museum guided tour through the Manassas Confederate Cemetery. The tour will feature costumed interpreters who will lead visitors by lantern through the cemetery and the adjacent Confederate Cemetery, which was begun after the Civil War to hold soldiers who had been buried nearby.

The Confederate Cemetery, established by the Ladies Memorial Association of Manassas, is now owned and maintained by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, Manassas Chapter. The Stories in Stone, Twilight Manassas City Cemetery Tour will also answer questions for those who have ever wondered about the prominent brownstone Confederate Memorial, or the reburial of Civil War soldiers.

Advance tickets are required. Those on tour will meet at the cemetery, 9317 Center Street, and may park at Whitt’s Harley Davidson, 9321 Center St. (next to the cemetery). Tickets are nonrefundable, unless the event is cancelled by the museum. Call 703-368-1873 or visit to purchase tickets.
