The home is the only one that Stonewall Jackson ever owned. The staff was most enthusiastic to show the house and the guided tour was excellent. The gardens were very interesting and provided insight into the man and his time.

My husband and I were in Lexington for an anniversary get away.We love to tour historical sights. We were amazed at how well the General's house and belongings had been maintained.Our tour guide was so informative. Being in the home and learning about his personal life made Stonewall become more of an actual person rather than an historical figure (... More

My military-bound son was interested in the house and tour, so on our way to Virginia Beach we stopped in. I'm glad we did! It's such a beautifully preserved home, rich with history which is thoroughly explained to you by tour guide Joan Klussmann. Her phenomenal knowledge of all things Thomas Jackson is uncanny. I remain impressed by the wealth... More

We visited the Stonewall Jackson home recently The house had many of Gen Jackson's personal belongings which offered insight into the man himself. Our tour guide was Marta and she made history come alive . We think this historic house is well worth the visit when in Lexington, Va

I thought this was a really neat little house museum. It is a very well done house museum and we had a really friendly, knowledgeable docent. It is a good look back in time and is more of an examination of Thomas Jackson the man and pre-Civil War Lexington than any sort of idealized Civil War hero. The house is... More

We were visiting Natural Bridge and had some time left after lunch. Decided to try and fit a visit it in as we had picked up a brochure on our trip south. It's about twenty minutes or so from Natural Bridge. The tour was informative and we felt we learned quite a bit, especially about his life prior to serving.... More

I loved the Stonewall Jackson House! The tour guide was so nice and the actual tour was informative and interesting. The house itself was beautiful, as were Jackson's gardens on the property. The town around it has a lot of good shopping, and I would recommend the beverage store across the street for local brews and a good selection of... More

We were schplunking around Lexington while taking our daughter to a neighboring University when we sort of bumped into the home. We were so excited that Stonewall's home was right there for the touring. We had a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. The home is missing that something quaint and quirky that you think you just...might...find...at the top of the... More

Interesting to learn of Stonewall's life before he entered the Civil War. Great tour guide for us. Be sure to ask why the front door is so high above street level!!

The tour was definitely informative as we learned some things about Jackson of which we had been unaware. There are few original items in the house. Most are period pieces and a few reproductions. But the Bed and bedroom furniture are original.
