After having toured Stonewall Jackson's house in Lexington, we weren't sure this would add much more info to our historical house tour experiences. But we were pleasantly surprised by the artifacts and story of how Stonewall use this as Headquarters during the winter season of the war. There were two tour guides the day we visited and seems we got... More

We visited the Stonewall Jackson Headquarters this afternoon and were so surprised. This place is the real deal. Some amazing items here.

My friends and I stumbled across this historical site via a map downtown and it was well worth the visit. The tour guide was extremely informative and the museum has a good number of pieces from Stonewall Jackson and even a few from General Lee. If you are interested in Civil War History this is a great, somewhat off the... More

Stonewall Jackson, brilliant Civil war general, captivating figure from the civil war and has Mary Tyler Moore as a descendant! This place was terrific! The docent working the day I visited was funny, informative and I believe he was old enough to have seen battle with the Army of Northern Virginia! LOL. The building is as it was in 1862.... More

Lots of history. Good stories. Amazed to find out that the house belonged to Mary Tyler Moores grandfather and she helped to restore it.

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
