Jan 2019 – Update: Restoration of Historic Barnes Home

It’s been a long time since I posted about this property.  I periodically get an inquiry, so I decided to do an update. The property is located at the Montclair Community Library , in Dumfries, VA.  Feel free to contact the library at 703-792-8740 for details.

There’s a lot of history associated with this property and you can check out my previous posts here.  Also, Prince William County Site on Historic Preservation where the Barnes House is discussed.

Now, to the news on this property. The library will be giving free tours of the property on 9 Feb 2019!  I went by the property this week and took a few picks to share to hopefully get you excited about joining me on the tour.  I assume these are pics of the original property and the original family that owned the property before the Barnes.

So I hope to see you on 9 Feb 2019 at the Montclair Community Library for the tour that starts at 11:00 am. Other tour times are 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm on 9 Feb 2019.

  1. Thanks for the update!
    I wonder if they’ll have local celebrities & politicians, besides you! At the opening didn’t they have Mrs. Virginia? Suggest you let our church leaders know, too.
