We liked the house. It is largely recreated because it was functioning as a hospital. The staff are very nice and the commentary was interesting. AAA discount available.

This review is of the Stonewall Jackson House rather than of the man or his military accomplishments. I say that in large part because this is where Thomas Jackson lived in the three years before the start of the Civil War, and it concentrates on his life in Lexington between the two wars, rather than his feats on the battlefield...

The house itself is fairly modest. It's near the University and cool to learn he used to walk to and from it daily. You walk his footsteps. Very small garden. The tour is only a couple rooms. I think four. The speaker engages you as much as they can, but he's not someone that was super exciting. They even said... More

Its the only home he ever owned. You can see the relatively short walk he had to The Institute, and the church where he taught Sunday school, and where he taught black children to read) is practically across the street. A man of peculiarities - be sure to admire his stand-up desk.

A great place to learn about the history of Stonewall Jackson. There is a small fee to tour the house and they provide a guide who explains every room and history of Stonewall Jackson. Tours are every half hour when we were there. Tour guides are excellent.

We loved visiting Stonewall Jackson's home. When we arrived, we were told a tour would start in three minutes. We asked about other attractions in Lexington and our tour guide and the man working in the gift shop gave us a map of Lexington and circled places of interest. They were very helpful. The tour started with a short video.... More

While traveling to Appomattox we decided to make a visit to Lexington's famous son's home. The tour guide was very knowledgable and not only showed some of the original belongings of Stonewall Jackson and his family we learned about how General Jackson lived and what life was like in the 19th century. If you want to learn more about the... More

The house is somewhat interesting, but I found the tour annoying and there were only a few rooms to see. Many of the furnishings, etc. were not original.
