This national park was established to protect the sites of the First and Second Battles of Manassas. The nucleus of the park is the Henry Farm where, on Henry Hill, heavy fighting occurred during both the Battles of Manassas. In 1922, the farm was acquired by the Sons of the Confederate Veterans who operated a military museum at the site until the late 1930's. At that time they turned over the property to the Department of the Interior to be administered by the National Park Service. A monument was built beside the Henry House and monuments were erected elsewhere on the battlefield.

In the 1930's, the Chinn House was acquired by the National Park Service, and in 1948, the Park Service acquired the Stone House. The monument to General Stonewall Jackson was erected in 1938 by the State of Virginia. In about 1940, the first part of the Visitor Information Center was constructed south of the Henry House. In 1958-60, a wing was added to the Visitor's Center, which now contains the museum.

The battlefield is listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places.
