"Christmas 1863" at the historic Stone House

Partner Event
December 2, 2023 @ 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM EST

Intersection of Lee Highway and Sudley Road
12521 Lee Hwy
Manassas, VA 20109

Join the Manassas Battlefield Trust to celebrate Victorian Christmas traditions with caroling, crafts, cider, cookies, and more, visit a Union soldier encampment, remembering the soldiers who were away from home for Christmas 1863, and those who would never return.

Christmas 1863 was bittersweet. The holiday season was certainly a welcome distraction from the ongoing war, yet endless families had an empty chair at the table that year. For the communities around Manassas Junction, that December was still a time of rebuilding from two major battles.

"Christmas 1863" will be held at the historic Stone House at the intersection of Lee Highway and Sudley Road. Because it is an historic building, the house is not handicap accessible.

This event is free and open to the public, but we ask that you reserve timed tickets to ensure adequate parking and activity materials.  

Donations will be accepted.
