Development could bring "wholesale destruction" to landscapes around Manassas NBP: USNPS

Warning of the “wholesale destruction” of historic landscapes related to major Civil War camps and troop burials, the new superintendent of Manassas National Battlefield Park has stated his strong concerns about the Prince William Digital Gateway, a plan to build 28 to 34 new data centers on 2,133 acres directly north of the national park.

In recent letters to Prince William County officials, Kristopher Butcher, the new

superintendent of the Manassas National Battlefield Park, stopped short of expressing the park’s outright opposition to the proposed data center development but called for additional “research, analysis and mitigation efforts” to protect the area’s numerous historic resources.
