Knowledgable docents brought the personal story of Gen. Stonewall Jackson and his family to life. They were willing to take questions at any time and if they didn't have an answer, they dug deep to get it for you. Also enjoyed the garden and the gift shop. Note: there is an admission fee compared to a number of historic sites... More

I've always enjoyed learning about the Civil War time period and the "key" people which Jackson certainly was....but was disappointed as our tour guide seemed to be more interested in showing us all of the pieces in the house belonging to Jackson...plus he seemed to want to go through fast...he did a nice job painting a picture in our minds...

How wonderful that this home has been preserved and made available to the public for viewing. Katie, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable and most professional. So glad I took the tour! I spent more than $100 in the gift/book shop.

I had read several biographies on Stonewall Jackson before I visited the only home he ever owned in Lexington, Virginia. This is Stonewall's town. It is the site of his home, the site of Virginia Military Institute, where he taught, and the site of Stonewall Jackson Cemetery, where he is buried. Located adjacent to the visitors center, the two-story brick... More

The guides are perhaps the most informative I have ever encountered. I have read a lot about General Jackson, but I learned so much more about the man by taking this tour. They had so many items that had belong to him and his wife. I was so impressed with the relationship he had with his slaves - it was... More

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Stonewall Jackson House. The guides were friendly and informative. With my GPS it was relatively easy to find.

I really only knew his name, but the tour of this well preserved home provided detailed information about Jackson and his life in Lexington.

This was probably the most fun visit we had in Lexington. A must see worthwhile visit. Stonewall Jackson has been a hero of mine for years, and recently I found out one of my ancestors served under him, makes it all the more special.

This wasn't on our trip itinerary but we had time so we stopped. Interesting but not a must see. We really didn't know anything about Jackson so it was an interesting history lesson

As Jackson's wife would never live here again after he died following Chancellorsville battle, and the house had been rented out and later also served as a hospital; most of the articles and furniture are representative of the time but were not Jackson's. They have attempted to furnish it with period pieces based upon letters, writings, etc.; and It is... More
