The Barnes House: A History of Our Community with Bill Backus


February 1, 2021 7:00 pm February 1, 2021 8:30 pm

Join PWCA and local historian Bill Backus as we explore our county’s diverse history through the lens of the Barnes House Historic Site.

Built in 1797 the Barnes house is an average Prince William County residence. But the people who lived here were anything but typical.

First used as a tavern, in the 1899 Eppa Barnes bought the house where he was born into slavery. Although the Barnes House has moved from its original location, the restored building highlights diverse history of Prince William County.
