In 1909, Eastern College relocated from Front Royal to Manassas, Va., on grounds that included a historic home. Robinson designed three new buildings to complete the campus, a men’s dormitory in June 1909, a women’s dormitory in June 1910 and a gymnasium in July 1910. All three were brick and concrete with hipped roofs and central entrances, some with one-level porticos and a central arched window on the second floor.
Eastern later suffered from low enrollment and financial difficulties and closed following World War I. In 1924, the Swavely School, a private boys’ school, moved into the former Eastern campus but it too suffered from financial problems and closed around 1935 during the Depression. In 1941, the site became home to the Manassas State Vocational School which shut down near the end of World War II.
The abandoned buildings were damaged in a fire in 1966 and demolished. The site is now home to Baldwin Park and the Manassas Museum, which includes interpretation on these schools.
