Foy-Hodges House, Manassas

This landmark stands as not only the grandest in Manassas but one of the largest and best preserved Folk Victorians I’ve ever seen. Its size is truly awe-inspiring. And the house is not vacant. Please do not trespass, as if I should even need to say so. According to Lisa Hearne, it was built by the namesake of Manassas himself, Manassas Foy and was purchased in the late 1800s by her great-great grandmother, Eliza Ann Collins Hodges and her husband. Mrs. Hodges was a descendant of the Collins family for whom the nearby town of Collins was named. There are even more notable structures in Manassas but I didn’t have the time to shoot them yesterday. I will certainly be back and encourage photographers in the area to explore Manassas and vicinity when they have the opportunity.

Patrick Benton writes of this Plantation Plain landmark: This house was built around 1870 by my great-great-grandfather, Henry Tippins. It has been in the family since then. It now serves as our weekend hunting lodge. Not much has been done to it as far as upgrades…I saw an old photo of it from the 30’s or 40’s. It was not painted then either!
