Portner is up for sale now in Old Town Manassas, Va.
For many years it served as Annaburg Nursing home and had addition wings built of both side to house the patients.
The wings are gone now and The City of Manassas is exploring putting up for sale.
“It was a mistake to think of houses, old houses, as being empty. They were filled with memories, with the faded echoes of voices.”
