Overview of Manassas
Located about 45 minutes west of Washington, D.C., Manassas gives residents access to one of the most important and exciting cities in the world. But with a population of 37,821 according to the latest census, the city can have a small town feel.
While many people may know the name from their U.S. history courses, those seeking Manassas apartments for rent will find a city that is looking to the future, while still honoring its past.
Living in Manassas, VA
The area surrounding Manassas was the site of a crucial part of American history. In July 1861, the first major land battle of the Civil War was fought close to where the city is currently located. The Confederacy called the battle Manassas, while the Union called it Bull Run, after the waterway it crossed before being turned back by the rebels. During the fighting, southern reinforcements lead by a colonel named Thomas J. Jackson helped to turn the tide of the battle by holding their position so well. This stout defense earned Jackson his well known nickname, "Stonewall."
The Second Battle of Bull Run (Second Battle of Manassas) was fought in the same area about 13 months later and again resulted in a Confederate victory, with General Robert E. Lee leading the southern forces.
Those seeking apartments in Manassas will undoubtedly come into contact to this rich history as they visit the surrounding areas and walk around Old Town, in the center portion of the city.
Manassas Work and Study
Manassas is located about 20 miles from Marine Corps base in Quantico, Virginia. This proximity to both the base and the other military activity that surrounds the nation's capital help to drive the economy of Manassas. Lockedheed Martin and Micron Technology are among the largest employers in Manassas. Other major employers include Prince William Health System and the Manassas city public schools.
Manassas is also the location of branch campuses for George Mason University, Strayer University and Northern Virginia Community College.
Rentals in Manassas, VA and Cost of Living

Manassas Attractions and Special Events
For a city so steeped in Civil War history it is little surprise that the most well-known attraction in the area is Manassas National Battlefield Park. Visitors to the park will be able to walk around and see the historic sites, participate in activities and watch a video about the area's role in the Civil War. Many commemorative events are held at the park.
There is also a lot to do in Manassas proper as well. The Old Town district contains the Historic Manassas Train Depot, which was built in 1914. There are a number of shops and restaurants in this neighborhood that are sure to provide some local flavor.
