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.

Interesting house with plenty of genuine historical photos and items, but I didn't think they were displayed or presented in a compelling manner (display cases were part of the tour, not something you could take time to examine carefully). Guide was very knowledgeable, but didn't seem to want to answer questions in a conversational way. Well worth the $5 admission,... More

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
