  • Southern Railway Station–Visitor Center (Virginia Division of Historic Resources)

The Manassas Visitor Center is housed in a well-preserved passenger depot constructed of red-painted brick, with pebble dash upper walls, a high hipped roof with overhanging eaves supported on long brackets, and a signalman's turret. Amtrak still uses the depot. Stylistically, the building is closest to an Arts and Crafts idiom.
