Admission is free; docents are very helpful, home is nicely restored and the grave site is most unusual as it just contains an arm. Whomever insisted that it be remembered was aware of the significance of what would become of a world class general.

the grave is off the beaten path so you must perservere. Its worth the effort to find the grave. Very peacefull with a nice view. The Elwood building is interesting and well worth the extra 30 min. to listen to the presentation by the staff that guides you through.

Ellwood is a lovely restored building and was visited as part of a tour of the Wilderness Battlefield. It is run by volunteers who were passionate and informative about its history and its significance to the Civil War. The grounds are very much as they would have been in the 19th century. The cemetery holding Stonewall Jackson's arm is a... More

I am a civil war history buff, and to be honest this is one of the few sites I found totally unappealing and useless... so do not waste the time that could definitely be better spent pursuing other local attractions... instead go to guinea station where the great general died, which is worth visiting

We were visiting The Wilderness battlefield and found Ellwood house along the way. I wasn't going to stop in until I read the brochure that indicated Robert E. Lee's father wrote his memoirs at the house and that Lafayette dined there. Admission is free so, why not go? The house is a guided tour (at no cost but donations are... More

A little piece of history tucked away in a field. My children are not old enough to understand the Civil War, but they enjoyed being outside

Ellwood Plantation where Stonewall Jackson's arm is buried is a typical Virginia plantation with the original plantation manor house open to the public. Tour guides gave the history of the plantation and were very informative. Well worth the visit!

This is located at the lovely Ellwood Manor, in the countryside off Route 30 and 20. The family cemetary became host to Jackson's arm after it was removed following the battle of Chancellorsville down the road. The Manor itself is in the Wilderness Battlefield and is being restored.

Stumbled on to this historic site by accident. Enjoyed the tour of the old farm house and walked the grounds.

The grave isn't so much to see, but there was a reenactment/storyteller when we visited, and that was very good. Made the trip completely worthwhile.
