Inscription.  When the Manassas Industrial School for Colored Youth opened in October, 1894, classes were initially held in the Charter Cottage, a small house already on the site. Completion of Howland Hall later that year heralded a process of campus construction that continued to the 1920s. In 1938 the campus became a regional high school for African-Americans from several area localities. By 1959 it was limited to black students from Prince William County. The original Manassas industrial School buildings were torn down in the 1960s.
