Those Places Thursday: View of Henry Hill from Stone House (Manassas Battlefield)

This is a modern-day view of Henry Hill, Manasas Battlefield, from inside Stone House on the Old Warrenton Turnpike (modern Route 29).

Stone House, once a tavern on a major thoroughfare, is better known for its service as a hospital during the battles of First and Second Bull Run.

After the Civil War, one of the owners to modify the structure into a private home was Benson Pridmore, the son of Benjamin and Elizabeth "Lucy" [Lynn] Pridmore.

Stone House is now part of the Manassas National Battlefield Park and open to the public during the spring/summer.
