Last year, Manassas resident, Hugh Ickrath along with a group of supportive neighbors, bought the historic Prescott House at 9300 Prescott Street in Manassas in order to save it from demolition. The group has been refurbishing the home for the past year and hopes to sell it to a family soon. The century-old home was just days away from being demolished by the city when the neighbors came together to save what they believe is an important and beautiful part of Manassas history.

Last August Ickrath held an Open House and invited the public to tour the home to see how far the repairs had come. Guests were charged $5 and the proceeds benefitted Habitat for Humanity Prince William County. Thanks to more than 500 visitors, just under $3,000 was raised for Habitat.

Appreciative of all the public support, Ickrath will hold another Open House on Saturday, April 26, from 11:00 to 5:00 p.m., so that everyone can see the progress since August. All proceeds from the $5 entry fee will again benefit Habitat for Humanity Prince William County. Please join us!
