Guided tours of "Stonewall" Jackson's home in Lexington, VA are informative and interesting. There is not enough to justify a dedicated trip to the house but it is worth a visit if you are passing through Lexington.

The guided tour was informative - we learned much about Stonewall's life before the war. The gardens behind the home are worth a visit as well. The staff was very friendly and were wonderful with our kids! Should be part of any trip to Lexington along with Lee Chapel and Hull's Drive In.

The tour is not very long, and only includes the kitchen, two sitting rooms, a bedroom, and a breakfast room. Our tour guide, though, was very knowledgable and shared some very interesting anecdotes. You definitely learn a lot about Stonewall Jackson's life and character, as well as some of the more tragic aspects of his life.

Very interesting guided visit of Stonewall Jackson House. The guide was well informed and had a good sense of humour. A good way to see how some persons lived in the 1800... I highly recommend this step back into history.

The hours of operation for the house are 9a-5p. We arrived at 5:30p on a Sunday just expecting to look at the house and maybe the grounds. The gentlemen working in the gift shop invited us in even though I'm sure they were ready to go home after a long day. They told us to look around as long as... More

Jackson's house gives you a good idea of what he was like -personality wise. How very stringent he was in certain matters. I felt that he really only saw things very black and white, with very little grey areas-at least in his personal life. It is a must see on a tour in Lexington, along with the Lee Chapel and... More

Civil war buff's, this is a must see! Short, maybe half hour, tour for something like $8 bucks. Well worth it to learn who the man really was. Just to walk in the footsteps of someone like Mr. Jackson really gives you something to think about while there.

I enjoyed seeing Stonewall Jackson's house for historical reasons but felt it was not as good as his headquarters in Winchester. That place had far more of his possesions and history than this place did. They had a lot of replicas and it was neat to see how the house probably was set up but a little disappointing not to...

I suppose it depends on your perspective. The Civil War brought out the worst and best of our nation and Jackson like Lee took a position they believed in strongly. The Jackson museum is a must see like the Lee Chapel to see these leaders and determine their motivations.
