Manassas Battlefield visitors center

The Manassas National Battlefield Visitor Center and nearby Northern Virginia Community College campus were evacuated Saturday after a suspected live ordnance was found.

A battlefield visitor found the ordnance in a nearby wood line and brought it to the visitors center Saturday afternoon, said Prince William police spokesman Nathaniel Probus.

The visitor center and NVCC were evacuated “for precautionary reasons only,” he said.

Virginia State Police bomb units later determined that the ordnance was inert, Probus said.
