quick historic stop

Hey, it's a cemetery. What do you want? Saw lots of headstones. Apparently Stonewall liked lemonade and someone still delivers fresh lemons to his grave site. Interesting!

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

Anyone looking for things to do while staying in Lexington VA must check this place out. It is neat to see all the old tombstones & who all is buried here. There is a little walking to do but it is worth it.

I love old cemeteries and this did not disappoint me. Burial sites of famous people are well marked on a sign at the entrance of the cemetery. It was easy to find.

the cemetery was not well kept many of the stones looked like they were going to fall over. However the grass was mowed and we were able to walk through easily

It wasn't much trouble to stop and stroll the cemetery and there were a few interesting tombstones but I don't rate it nearly a high as some other posts. To each his own.

Really enjoyed walking thru the Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetery. You can really see a piece of history and the lives of those that fought in the Civil War then came home. Fascinating!

On the downside there is no map of the cemetery, but you can't miss Stonewall and the civil war soldiers all have CSA markers to distinguish them Several of the older stones are difficult to read and could benefit from a restoration/cleaning project or a handout that tells you what is on them. Several unusual names. A good addition to... More

Very cool attraction that is well worth the time. Our Carriage ride driver said there are veterans from every American war buried here. Obviously heavy on the Civil War, but still very interesting

Pointed out as part of the walking tour of the area. Worth the trip (and you could drive and park out front).
