About the Prescott House
The Prescott House has stood as a landmark in Manassas since its construction well over 100 years ago, but the sizeable Queen Anne-style home fell into disarray in recent times and was very much in danger of demolition by the city on more than one occasion. A group of neighbors, led by Hugh and Kerry Ickrath, purchased the house for $118,750 during a short sale in 2013, restored it to safety and beauty, and sold the refurbished home to our reception host, Amalfi Arias.
It takes vision to look at what has been broken down and build it up again. It also takes vision to create what doesn’t exist because you hear a calling. As Manassas Ballet Theatre celebrates the twenty-year anniversary of Artistic Director Amy Grant Wolfe’s calling to create a ballet company for Manassas, we celebrate all the renovators, creators, doers and visionaries who have helped build and restore Manassas one idea at a time.
