Our tour guide was a lovely lady who knew we were interested in history and told her many stories about items in the house. We learned a lot about the history of the house and the war that raged around it.

As a Civil War enthusiast, this was a must-see when I drove through Winchester. The house is stunningly well-preserved, and still has most of the contents that it held during Jackson's original stay. (Everything from furniture and paintings to the quilt that was on his bed are in the same rooms that housed them over 150 years ago.) The tour... More

I used to live in Winchester and this is a great historical site. They do a very good job of conveying the life and accomplishments of Stonewall Jackson. A must see when in Winchester.

Beautiful historic home that once served as Stonewall Jackson's headquarters. Tour for the holiday season was in the evening, with lovely historically accurate decorations of greens, fruits, and candles.

The folks who run this are very knowledgeable and obviously love their position in maintaining the grounds. Objectively, it is a beautifully kept residence with a lot of interesting and unique pieces from the Civil War era. Any CW geek would be well served to visit here (but any CW geek worth their salt is already going to!).

This is a trip back in time to the time of General Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson time to the house that served as his home and headquarters during the campaign. The house has a couple of docent with guided tours, period pieces and memorabilia, and is a time capsule. The guides are very well informed, enthusiastic about that period of history... More

We just visited "Alta Vista", Jackson's Headquarters earlier this week. The Museum Docent was wonderful, colorful and full of knowledge. Jackson is one of my favorite Generals and have read much about him. She knew it all and more. It is a shame the town had encroached onto the property where the front of the house faces other homes on... More
