We’ll travel by luxury bus to Philadelphia for an action-packed day, complete with kosher lunch at the museum, a guided tour, and a fabulous dinner in Center City, Philadelphia.

Tour Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pope-Leighey House
Wednesday, March 18, depart the J 10:15am; return 1:15pm
Contact: Michele.Endick@jccnv.org, or 703.537.3095
During the 1930s, Frank Lloyd Wright set out to “designing affordable middle-class residences.” More than 100 of these modest homes, referred to as Usonian, thought to mean “the United States of North America,” were constructed between 1936 and Wright’s death in 1959, including the Pope-Leighey house (1940). Commissioned in 1939 by Loren Pope, a journalist in Falls Church, the residence was sold to Robert and Marjorie Leighey in 1946. The house was in the path of an expansion of Highway 66, so in an effort to preserve the building, Mrs. Leighey gave the property to the National Trust, which relocated it to nearby Woodlawn and granted her lifetime tenancy. Mrs. Leighey occupied the house at Woodlawn, until her death in 1983.
Fee: $14/ $10 J member for bus transportation.

Private Tour of Liberia Plantation, Manassas, Virginia
Wednesday, April 15, depart the J 10:15am; return 1pm
Contact: Michele.Endick@jccnv.org, or 703.537.3095
This will be our first time visiting this very interesting mansion and surrounding property. 
Robert “King” Carter, (1663-1732) the wealthiest Virginian in his time, left 330,000 acres of land with a 1,660-acre parcel passing eventually to his granddaughter, Harriett Bladen Mitchell in 1824. With her husband, they built an architecturally distinctive five bay brick house that integrated Georgian and Federal design components. The plantation, known as “Liberia” included a post office, general store, Liberia Academy, family cemetery and other outbuildings. When the Civil War erupted, several of their sons enlisted in the Confederate Army, but one stayed behind to operate the plantation. 

The house served as the headquarters for Gen. P. G. T. Beauregard, CSA for a few months. On the evening of the Battle of First Manassas, it is thought that President Jefferson Davis met with his generals at Liberia and made the fateful decision not to pursue Union troops into Washington. In mid-March 1862, the owners fled Liberia leaving trusted slaves to pack up the family belongings and protect the house. General McDowell established his military headquarters there, and in June 1862, President Abraham Lincoln came to Liberia to confirm the general’s health after an injury. By the end of the Civil War, Liberia was the only significant structure to remain standing on the plains of Manassas.

In 1888 the property was sold and developed into a successful dairy operation. In 1986, Liberia mansion and 5.6 acres of land were sold to the City of Manassas.
