You need to ring the doorbell to gain access, and what a surprise to have the door opened by a lady in period dress! Fantastic start to the tour; the house is beautifully laid out, and the information given is very informative. For those interested, the old quilt is made by a man, an Irish chain quilt that is so...

Lots of great Jackson artifacts here, far more than you might expect. The house and grounds are well tended and the tour was very informative. If you plan to spend the day, consider purchasing the "block ticket" that provides a nice discount for visiting 2 other historic sites. Very convenient to the walking mall in the historic center of town.... More

We decided to stop by the Stonewall Jackson headquarters while we were in Winchester. We were not sure what to expect but were really pleased with the visit starting with the fact that we were greeted at the door like true visitors to the house! Our guide, Brian, was very knowledgeable about Jackson, the campaign and the time he spent... More

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

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.
