The Manassas Museum Associates invites you to help share the uplifting but little-known story of a courageous woman who made an indelible mark on this community.

In 1992, the Manassas City Council formally approved plans for the development of a five-acre archaeological memorial located on the original site of the Manassas Industrial School for Colored Youth (9601 Wellington Road). Phase 1 of the Memorial was dedicated in 1995 which included replicated foundations, an information kiosk, and a model of the original campus with parking and gravel walkways. 

The Manassas Industrial School/Jennie Dean Memorial update seeks to encourage more of the community to visit, linger, and learn about Jennie Dean’s rich legacy. Phase One of the $350,000 project includes installation of a long-planned bronze statue and a surrounding plaza with enhanced landscaping. Local artist Chris Hill’s proposed statue depicts Jennie Dean as the dynamic woman she was, and it will be an impressive focal point of the Memorial.

Future plans call for connected walking paths, an updated interpretive kiosk and signage, and an amphitheater for community use.
