If you are going to visit the grave of Stonewall Jackson you should take a few minutes to walk around the older part of the cemetery. History goes deep and not just for the South

I love visiting cemeteries and while this had a few interesting things, I wouldn't go out of my way for it. Yeah, the citrus fruit at Jackson's grave was noteworthy. But I'd recommend any of a number of better cemeteries in the area that are much more interesting and noteworthy.

A small cemetery, ages old and with General Jackson's grave and thus the name of the place. Pay respects and remember.

We took the short walk of a few blocks from the Stonewall Jackson house to the cemetery to view Stonewall Jackson's grave. Since we are also geocachers, completing the puzzle and finding the cache located at his grave was a must. The cemetery is very clean and well maintained and was a pleasant walk in the shade on a hot... More

I have family buried here - Grandfather and Grandmother, Great-Grandfather and Great-Grandmother. Absolutely love this cemetery and visit whenever I come to Lexington. It's easy to find - entrance is on Main Street. I've always enjoyed visiting cemeteries because I find the monuments fascinating and I like taking pictures of them.

Visited the cemetery on a recent trip to Lexington and was very pleased. My primary goal was to pay my respects to the great General Jackson, but I found myself surrounded by other CSA officers and soldiers. Reading the many stones provided an insight into the lives of these men. I realize it's only a cemetery to most but I... More

This old cemetery is the final resting place of Civil War General Stonewall Jackson. You can spend a pleasant hour or two walking around the cemetery reading the names and epithets on the stones of old Lexington families and Civil War soldiers. Many of the buried have connections to the colleges. We had stayed overnight at the R.E. Lee Hotel,... More
