Loy E. Harris - The Man

Through the years, Manassas has prospered because "community minded" people saw opportunities to make our City a better place.

Loy E. Harris was one of these people. In the years before his death on August 17, 1999, Loy worked to strengthen the Old Town business district, knowing and preaching the importance of this in giving clarity and definition to Manassas.

First Loy became involved with Historic Manassas, Inc., an organization dedicated to revitalizing Old Town. He infused the organization with new energy and ideas and then led by example, buying and renovating three buildings.

Finally, his perspiration led to the inspiration of this City Square Project and he worked tirelessly to bring the public and private sectors together for this common purpose.

Loy E. Harris came here, stayed here, lived his life here, and made a difference here.

For all the ways he made a difference we thank him. And in lasting gratitude, we name this the "Loy E. Harris Pavilion".

Loy E. Harris - His Friends

The private side of this public/private partnership consisted of scores of volunteers who gave hundreds of hours to make City Square a reality and the many businesses and individuals listed below

who donated a collective $125,000.
