1873 - 1915As the twentieth century dawned, an emerging town stood on what was once battle-scarred land. Incorporated in 1873, Manassas included churches, businesses, banks, newspapers, a small force of police and firemen, and hundreds of homes. The influence of the railroad continued to shape the community and was the main factor in Manassas becoming the county seat in 1892. Women in particular played an important role in shaping the town during the first quarter of the twentieth century, establishing schools, working in local businesses and crating civic organizations that supported a wide array of charitable causes. Segregation was a way of life, yet local black citizens contributed much to their neighborhoods, building schools, churches and businesses central to the growth of the community.
