To commemorate the 90th Anniversary of The District Home, an Open House will be held on Thursday, May 4th .

The Open House will be from 3:00-5:00 p. m. at The District Home, 8605 Centreville Road, Manassas, VA 20110. Representatives of the Prince William Chamber of Commerce will also be on hand to assist with a ribbon cutting. Before the official cutting of the ribbon, there will be a presentation on The District Home along with social time with refreshments.

It all began in 1927 when five localities in our region combined efforts to establish a home for those who, for a variety of reasons, did not have the ability to care for themselves. The localities purchased a 54-acre site on Centreville Road in Manassas – part of a larger tract known as Birmingham Green. There they built the District Home of Northern Virginia to provide food, shelter and work for the area’s indigent citizens.

For more than 90 years, Birmingham Green’s familiar building at the end of the tree-lined drive has been “home” to our fellow Northern Virginians who need long-term care, but lack the personal resources to afford the services. Birmingham Green and its predecessor organization have continually provided dignified, caring assistance to its residents.
