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

This house was Stonewall Jackson's headquarters for 1 winter period. It is an excellent collection of his personal items, including his prayer bench, binoculars, and his camp chair, still with the original fabric. This should be a required stop for any Civil War buff. Hopefully your docent/guide will be Jenna, she was outstanding.

It is so wonderful when you find a hidden gem like this. The docent, Glenna, was a HOOT. Funny, interesting, knowledgeable. This house is packed with the unexpected. Jackson memorabilia, original pieces - all organized, annotated and presented with flair. Loved it!

Joann was the docent who took us on the tour which was wonderful...she was extremely knowledgeable and we interacted very well with her. This was the 3rd tour we had taken today and Joann was so good she kept our attention. This museum is part of... More

There is so much Civil War history woven into the fabric of historic Winchester, Virginia. After all, three battles were fought there. And the town was said to have changed sides more than a dozen times. Perhaps the most interesting site of all is the Stonewall Jackson Headquarters Museum at 415 North Braddock Street. It is in the middle of... More

Our culture is attempting to eradicate all things Confederate. I hope this home will remain accessible as an historic place. Excellent preservation of Jackson's office and furniture. The hostesses were lovely women with much knowledge and dedication. This was my third visit in 12 years.
