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.

If you have ANY interest in Civil War history, spend sone time in this gorgeous town and tour this fascinating house. Inch for inch, Lexington offers more history than any place in the USA and this house is like stepping into a time machine. I confess I hail from a yankee state but we all know the south had the...

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
