SAM’s Northern Virginia office (NoVA) has completed a two-year commitment with the Liberia Plantation located in Manassas, Virginia. Built in 1825, the plantation is a two-story, five-bay brick dwelling once used as a headquarters during the American Civil War. Currently, it is under restoration and is open for special events or tours by appointment.
The City of Manassas began restoring the Liberia Plantation several years ago with the intention of turning it into a multifunctional facility to serve as a venue for weddings and corporate and family events. For the past two years, and in partnership with the City of Manassas and Liberia Plantation, SAM employees volunteered to assist with the restorations. Employees picked up trash, laid trails full of mulch, and planted shrubs and flowers.
In an effort to support Eagle Scout Kyle Kunzer’s Build a Bridge project from the main plantation across the creek to the bathhouse, SAM employees collected donations to help fund the project. Once donations were collected, SAM contributed to the effort by matching the donations received. With the contributions, employees were able to cover approximately 95% of the cost of Kyle’s “Build a Bridge” project.
SAM was recognized by the City of Manassas for their efforts. The company is truly honored to have been a part of such an exemplary community project.
