Old Manassas Railroad Depot Pictures

Built in 1904 the Manassas Railroad Depot has been serving commuters to Washington, DC ever since. The three black and white photos in the collage are representative of many others currently hanging in the waiting rooms. The fourth is a photo I took of the old telegrapher's office that has been restored

A fire in 1912 destroyed the entire building which was rebuilt on the original foundation in 1914.

The station was restored to its' original condition in 1997. Although I have not inquired I suspect the two waiting rooms were there as a result of segregation in Southern states. One of them is now the offices of Historic Manassas - the marketing arm of the Old Town Manassas district which is a major tourist and commercial area.

The authenticity of the restoration even extends to the antique mailbox outside which is still in service.

When compared to the black and white photo above the first photo below attests to the great care that was taken in the restoration.

Although freight trains rumble through and Amtrak trains either stop or pass through the station's primary user is the Virginia Railway Express commuter service.

The depot is very popular with tourists, most especially railroad buffs.
