Disney’s America History-themed park announced in 1993 to be built in Prince William County near Haymarket, Virginia. Guests would be able to experience distinct periods in American history. The park would bring history to life, examining the conflicts and successes that have marked the nation’s passage from colony to world power. While state officials and local residents were generally in favor of the project, there was intense opposition from a group of historians and environmentalists who complained about it being too near the Manassas Civil War battlefield. On September 28, 1994, Disney announced that a different site would be sought, but no further work has been done on the project.
