1. Stone House Marker
Inscription. The Stone House at the intersection of the historic Warrenton Turnpike and Manassas-Sudley Road witnessed the shifting tides of battle at First and Second Manassas. Tour the house (open seasonally) and walk to the crest of Buck Hill, on your right, for a vantage point overlooking the historic crossroads and the heart of both battlefields.

Manassas National Battlefield Park preserves nearly 5,000 acres of historic land. History and nature converge here to create an absorbing visitor experience. In addition to historic structures, archeological sites, and cultural landscapes, the park provides habitat for a wide variety of plants, birds, and other wildlife. Please enjoy your visit and help us protect the park for future generations.

(captions)
In times of peace the Stone House was a tavern and travelers' rest.

During both battles wounded soldiers found shelter here and some left their mark on the house.
