HABS Fly-through Animation of Mary Jane Dogan House

Manassas National Battlefield Park, Manassas, VA

The Mary Jane Dogan House (formerly called the M.E. Dogan House) is located in Manassas National Battlefield Park in Manassas, Virginia.

The Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) is part of the National Park Service's Heritage Documentation Programs (HDP). HDP staff members undertook fieldwork at the Mary Jane Dogan House beginning in 2019. The team included project leader and HABS Architect Paul Davidson, HABS Architect Daniel De Sousa, Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS) Architect Ryan Pierce, historian and HABS Chief Catherine Lavoie, and HDP Photographer Jarob Ortiz. Their work was sponsored by the National Park Service's Historic Preservation Training Center.

The HABS documentation will support the completion of a Historic Structure Report (HSR) and subsequent rehabilitation efforts. The animation was created using the same 3-D scans used to document the structure for the creation of architectural drawings. This technology allows a unique look into the structure during the investigative process and early stabilization undertakings.

HALS Architect Ryan Pierce created the animation using Pointools & Premier Pro. The video contains no spoken word and is best viewed in HD or at a high resolution setting. To change the viewing setting, click on the "gear" icon at the bottom of the viewing window to adjust the resolution.
