Tour of the house and some Jackson history as well. Guide was very nice and informative. Located in the historic district downtown Lexington.

My wife and I have soft spots for Lexington in that her hero is Stonewall Jackson and mine is Robert E Lee. Lexington is the place to pay your respects to both men. Stonewall Jackson’s House is well presented and his life story is explained thoroughly by excellent docents. There is a feeling of it all being staged rather like... More

We were disappointed with our visit to this former home of Stonewall Jackson. The furniture and displays in the home were NOT owned by the hero himself, but were just period pieces that 'would have been in a home in that era'. We felt cheated, as we could see those types of pieces on display in any re-creation across the... More

The historical sites I appreciate the most are those that reflect the personal lives of the people involved. The Stonewall Jackson House does just that, allowing the visitor an opportunity to see how he and his family lived in addition to his battlefield accomplishments.

In many ways, if it were not for the historical fame of one former occupant, this house would be not very special. However, the guide was good and made it clear what sort of man Stonewall Jackson was and how his life before the Civil War shaped the general he became.

My title says it all really. We had an excellent tour with an equally excellent guide who made the whole experience come to life. Unreservedly recommend this place.

The details on the life of this famous Civil War general were most interesting. We also enjoyed walking around the garden in the back.

We had picked up a free pass at the Visitors Center right down the street or we may not have paid the fee to get in. However, we found the tour to be very informative so I am glad we went

This was our guide's maiden voyage and he did a wonderful job! I enjoy history but have never been particularly drawn to the Civil War. I learned so much about Jackson and his family and have a greater respect for the man. The guide took time to answer all of our questions. Unfortunately, it was raining so we did not... More

Very interesting. Learned a lot about the man prior to the civil war. Very interesting character, and very nice home in Lexington. Really enjoyed the tour and the tour guide was very informative. It was possible to learn about the man by observing how he lived, what was important to him, how he prepared for his teaching lesson each evening,... More
