“Southern History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We had picked up a free pass at the Visitors Center right down the street or we may not have paid the fee to get in. However, we found the tour to be very informative so I am glad we went

“Excellent Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This was our guide's maiden voyage and he did a wonderful job! I enjoy history but have never been particularly drawn to the Civil War. I learned so much about Jackson and his family and have a greater respect for the man. The guide took time to answer all of our questions. Unfortunately, it was raining so we did not get to explore what looked like a beautiful garden in the back.

“Stonewall's home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Very interesting. Learned a lot about the man prior to the civil war. Very interesting character, and very nice home in Lexington. Really enjoyed the tour and the tour guide was very informative.
It was possible to learn about the man by observing how he lived, what was important to him, how he prepared for his teaching lesson each evening, etc. As a civil war buff I have some knowledge of Stonewall's war achievements, but no knowledge of his pre-war life.

“Very Interesting and Personable Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This one is well worth the few dollars for admission. It's great education for those of use who have forgot what we learned in grade school. Easy walking access to VMI and other places of interest.

“Interesting Tour of the House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The House doesn't look like much from the outside, but the tour was very interesting. Guide was very informative and knew lots of stories. Small but good gift shop.
