Established in 1993, Prospero's Books occupies the historic 103 year-old Hibbs & Giddings building in the heart of Old Town Manassas. Originally, the building was a clothing store founded by lifelong friends E. Humphrey Hibbs and Eugene G. Giddings. Hibbs and Giddings opened in this location in 1912.
This dignified structure serves as an anchor and landmark on a busy corner of Old Town Manassas, across from the Loy E. Harris Pavilion.
Our on-line listings are only a small fraction of our inventory, so please stop in a visit.
