Manassas Stroll: Liberty Street

Contributing Writer: Andrea Lopez | Images: CCN Manassas —

On Liberty Street, the first Prince William County school for African American children was established. It was originally called the “Manassas Village Colored School”, but in 1872 was renamed the “Brown School,” in honor of Mary D. Brown. The school relocated in 1928 to Prince William Street. Its original location on Liberty Street still stands today but has gone through renovations and serves as a residency.

The buildings on Liberty Street tell a lot about the past through their historic structures and are very important to the African American community.
