Community members have a new way to learn about Prince William County’s history.
The Historic Preservation Division, the Office of Tourism and the County Historical Commission have created an African American History Trail.
Featuring 20 locations, it seeks to act as an educational resource and promote tourism, according to an article on the county’s website.
Historic sites, parks, churches and localities make up the trail. The Barnes House, 5049 Waterway Drive in Dumfries; the Brentsville Courthouse Historic Centre, 12229 Bristow Road in Bristow; Ebenezer Baptist Church, 209 Washington Street in Occoquan; and Lucasville School, 10516 Godwin Drive in Manassas are among them.
More information about the African American History Trail and its sites can be found on the Visit Prince William website.
Officials plan to expand the trail and create an audio tour. Signs for the sites may be added, as well.
The Historic Preservation Division and Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) are partnering together to learn how the trail can be connected with classes and camps.
