The Henry House was supposedly built in two stages, in part on the stone foundation of the earlier Henry House. At the time of the Civil War, it was the home of Judith Carter Henry, an 85-year-old widow. According to legend, the elderly Judith Henry was moved from the house on a litter when the fighting on Henry Hill began on July 21, 1961. She asked to be returned to the house, however, and was struck by a stray shell. After the battle, the house was allegedly chipped into pieces and carried off by signtseers as souvenirs. The remains of the house were burned during the Second Battle of Manassas.

The present house on the site was begun in 1870, the first part having been built by a Confederate veteran named Andrew Norman. In the 1920's, the house was operated as a museum by the Sons of the Confederate Veterans. The Department of the Interior acquired the property in the late 1930's, and it is now a part of the Manassas National Battlefield Park.
