History buffs will love this. The statue of Stonewall Jackson is quite memorable. You can park right on the street alongside the cemetary or you can take a carriage ride and listen to the tour guide tell you all about the history of the cemetery and Lexington as well.

We took the walk through the Stonewall Jackson Cemetery as it was on the way downtown. It has some intriguing stones and markers. It is interesting that the markers include ages and relationships to that person. Some of the stones are so worn that you can't read them! They are over 200 hundred years old! The history in the cemetery... More

The obvious attraction is Stonewall Jackson's grave and memorial but there were a number of other interesting memorials to be found, including that of his first wife and her family. We went fairly early in the morning and were enchanted to see three deer moving around the stones.

Unassuming cemetery with lots of old headstones. Sparked some questions from our teenagers. If in Lexington, it's a quick stop to add to your list. I would recommend the Lexington Visitors Center whose staff was very helpful as we're all of the walking tour maps etc they provided.

As any cemetery, it is a very solemn and tranquil place. Jackson's burial spot is located centrally under his statue. Lying nearby is his aide Sandie Pendleton and his father who was Jackson's chief artillerist. Interesting stop.

We stopped at the cemetery prior to continuing on our vacation. This is definitely a place to visit, especially with school age children. We can teach about American history but walking through this cemetery and seeing the comments on the grave markers as well as the historical aspects bring history to life.

Perhaps it is ironic that, in the tiny Shenandoah hamlet of Lexington, Virginia, Robert E. Lee is buried at one end of town and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson is buried at the other end, two of greatest names in the military history of the United States, two legendary figures of the American Civil War. Jackson, who was killed in 1863...

Just a short walk from downtown Lexington, the main draw to this little cemetery is Stonewall Jackson's grave as well as the family's original plot/burial location. The city takes good care of the grounds and it is quite a quaint little spot.

This now public cemetery houses the remains of many prominent figure in Lexington history especially the civil war era. Those reading up on history first or visiting w a guide will get more out of the visit. A welcome stop on a hot afternoon and easy walk from anywhere in town.
