It has the Harris Pavillion, an outdoor venue that is converted to a skating rink for community members to enjoy in the wintertime. The Manassas Museum sits south of Old Town, showcasing the city’s history and role in the American Civil War. Old Town Triangle houses Manassas’s most notable buildings: Annaburg Manor, Annaburg Manor Gatehouse, and Bennett House. There are also two recreational parks: Nelson Park and William Delisle Park.

Another neighborhood in Manassas that has homes increasing in demand is Fernbrook, which has many competitively priced large homes for families, as well. Homes are of various styles and time periods. Many have garages and sit on at least 2 acres with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
