My dad was a Civil War Re-enactor, so we really wanted to go see this house museum with him while he was up from TN. It was the coolest, most enjoyable, best tour we went on that day! Our guide was very knowledgeable, funny, and kind; the home is extremely well-preserved; and many of the pieces are either original or... More

Greeted in period costume, groups of 5 shown around by ver enthusiastic and knowledge staff. Stonewall was only here for a few months, but the have collected a good array of picures, flags, paintings and other memorabilia, so each of about 8 rooms has a story to tell; amazining that this town had changed hands 70 times. Small gift shop... More

A lovely house, easy to find with roadside parking. Greeted at the door by a period dressed lady who shared the tours with another man giving a good tour of many rooms and relating much information about the house, it's occupants and history.

We loved everything about this place. The area it is in is historic and attractive. The docent was passionate about her presentation and fielded questions quite well. The rooms and artifacts were amazing...even objects of Robert E. Lee's there. It was a neat way to spend an afternoon and just to be where a famous General spent months was really... More

We visited yesterday and had a wonderful personalized tour by a woman in period costume. She was extremely knowledgeable and answered a lot of our family's questions with no problems. It was quiet when we were there and not crowded. I would highly recommend it!

We visited this site last week and were greeted at the door by our tour guide who was dressed in a period costume. She was personable and extremely knowledgable about Stonewall Jackson and the civil war. The house contains many items owned and used by Jackson and they are all in great condition. If you enjoy history and particularly civil... More

We were greeted at the door by a pleasant docent. A presentation had just begun; so, we joined the group. The docent was quite good. She shared personal accounts of the family who had originally owned the house as well as the new owner who, we learned, was an ancestral grandfather of Mary Tyler Moore. At the close of the... More

This was a extra that we did. Close by to walk from hotel. The docent was very knowledgble and a welcoming and genuine in sharing the history of the house and the time that Stonewall Jackson occupied the house. There may even be a ghost of two there! The history of the house and the items on display help to... More

When I rang the doorbell, I was warmly greeted by a tour guide in a period costume. That sealed the deal for me. I wish I had asked her name, because she was great. It was just the two of us and she led me through the house, giving me great tidbits about Jackson, the period, and the artifiacts. Well... More

If you are interested in the civil war then by all means do tour Stonewall Jackson's headquarters. The tour guide we had made the whole story of this part of history come to life. Very interesting tour.
