Stone House, Manassas National Battlefield

1 02 2011

Thought I’d share a photo that Michael shot (using his Nikon D40) of the Stone House at Manassas National Battlefield after our latest snowstorm. The house was a refuge for wounded soldiers during the First Battle of Manassas. It is one of only three intact pre-Civil War buildings in the Park and has stood the test of time since the 1840s. Learn more about the history of the house here.

This photo is awesome on multiple fronts, from the wonderfully warm sunlight, to the shadow of the tree separated a perfect amount from the tree, to the snow along the one side of the tree, to the texture and patterns of the side of the building itself. Just marvelous. Bravo.

Oh, I’d love to imagine the inside of that home with its wood burning fireplace and wood burning stove. What a beautiful photo, Michael.

I mean no disrespect to the fact that the house was used to house wounded soldiers. I was just imagining it in its present day.
