We walked there from our hotel (couple blocks) and were happy to find this gem. Tour leader was excellent - very knowledgible and friendly/witty. For the money ($5/person) it is hard to beat. Plus, we went at 3 PM (closes at 4 PM) and so we had the tour leader all to ourselves. Very interesting place.

Certainly worth the $5 admission, because you get an actual tour of the home/headquarters. Charming elderly lady took my wife and I around for an extensive and detailed visit. Other museums in area charge $5 as well, but you don't get this type of service.

Our hour long tour was well worth our time. The home was used during the Civil War for a period of time by Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. Our docent was very well versed in the time period, and especially regarding Jackson. He held our interest, and even the young children in the group seemed captivated. This is in the town, and...

This is a great place to stop in Winchester. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Everything is well preserved and interesting. The tour is a great price for the historical information that you learn. Much of the house is as it was when Stonewall Jackson was there. One of the parts we liked best are the paintings of... More

Though the house is not steeped in Stonewall history as other reviewers have pointed out, it is full of relics. The guide was very informative and clearly passionate about the house. If your in the area, i would certainly make the stop. It is a bit strange that they lock you in and out, but i get that they need... More

As with George Washington, Winchester has a rather tenuous relationship with Thomas Jackson AKA Stonewall. He was only there for a few months and fought no major battles in the area. He stayed in this house for a short time. The City would be better off billing it by the name of the family that owned it, and discussing their... More

The tour guide was very warm and went to great lengths to help us understand the history of the area and the war. Of special interest is the authentic pieces of furniture. Dressed in period clothing, she wove those pieces into the stories very well.
