Manassas Industrial School for Colored Youth Dairy Barn

— Agricultural Pursuits —

The Manassas Industrial School for Colored Youth, founded by Jennie Dean and chartered in 1893 as a private residential school for African-American children, provided academic and vocational training in a Christian setting. By 1909, students had built a new model barn and silo on this site to care for livestock properly and to handle milk and milk products in the most sanitary way. By 1915, students were taking animal husbandry and farm management classes. "The success of agricultural pursuits must more and more depend upon a definite course of instruction," said the school's 1916 report.
