Located in Manassas National Battlefield Park, this stone house was built in 1848, its early years were spent as the home of farmer Henry P. Matthew and his family, who harvested the peaceful Virginia countryside surrounding the property.
The structure later served as a field hospital for not one, but two, major Civil War battles - the First Battle of Manassas (Bull Run) and the Second Battle of Manassas (Bull Run). With its strong stone walls, a well in the yard and close proximity to the road back to Washington, D.C., it was the ideal site for treating the wounded, of which there were many.
