From the outside a simple home, on the inside, a giant of the history books comes alive! To see where Stonewall Jackson came after a days work to reflect, greet visitors, and live/sleep was amazing. And to compare how he lived to how modern conveniences of today are so different, gives a great appreciation for how people lived in the... More

Very neat to see the history of stonewall Jackson. I learned a lot on this tour here and had a great time at the museum. I love how everything was restored to look updated yet you could still picture yourself back in time during that lifestyle. Loved seeing the garden and all the beauty within stonewall jacksons life. Must see... More

It was nice to see this home although Jackson only lived there a short time. Nice kitchen garden and some of his artifacts were in the home. Informative.

We were very interested in Stonewall Jackson's home and the historical information it contained . However , our tour guide was rude, opinionated, and barely spoke over a whisper. She had an accent making it very difficult to understand. Someone in our party accidentally left a cell phone on and she came unglued. And when we touched an item that... More

We enjoyed touring Stonewall Jackson's home, and the guide was very knowledgeable. We didn't get to the cemetery due to rainy weather, but the home and back garden was very interesting. A must see if you are in the area.

Both the desk person and the docent treated this northern couple very nicely. The docent was very informative and knowledgeable. Though the home is small you do view both floors. However there are few of Jackson's personal possessions.

Our tour was great!. There is so much more to this man than just his military fame. I didn't know he had been a professor at the Virginia Military Academy there, and his wife was the Principals daughter. He was so dedicated to be a good teacher, he would turn his chair to the wall each night,(sign to not be... More

The tour of Stonewall Jackson's historic home in Lexington VA took us back in time! The guide was very knowledgeable and made the history "come alive". Why wasn't it this interesting in high school history class?? Some of the furniture, books and other memorabilia were originals. Highly recommended.
