I only visited because I had some free time and it was raining. However, the house and the knowledgeable tour guide made this a house worth visiting. I learned a lot about Jackson. The garden and its scarecrow were also interesting.

This tour provided not only a glimpse into his house but also into his childhood and surprising challenges he encountered during his early years. There is a chair in the bedroom where replicas of his uniform items are displayed. No words can describe the impact that is felt upon looking at this. The gentleman who provided the tour is very...

The docent presented an interesting picture of Stonewall Jackson's life. The house is not large and most of the furnishings are period, but not original to Jackson. The house was last used as a hospital, but has been restored to the reflect the life and times of Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. Would recommend this house as a compliment to visiting... More

A must see for civil war buffs. The tour was very informative and interesting, not only on the life of Stonewall Jackson but the history of the city and the life of the people during those times.

We scooted in just in time for the 4:30pm tour. It was very nice and I enjoyed learning about the life of Stonewall Jackson. We are huge history buffs and we noticed that the home had been updated and modified a bit too nicely to fit to the time period. It is very nice and quite affordable, so no complaints.... More

This simple tour of Stonewall Jackson's house is a must see in Lexington, VA. He was a man before his time. I did not expect to be so thrilled to learn about how he lived his life. You will not be disappointed and take your AAA card for a discount.
