“Brings history to life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

The historical sites I appreciate the most are those that reflect the personal lives of the people involved. The Stonewall Jackson House does just that, allowing the visitor an opportunity to see how he and his family lived in addition to his battlefield accomplishments.

“Typical house of the period, extraordinary man”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

In many ways, if it were not for the historical fame of one former occupant, this house would be not very special. However, the guide was good and made it clear what sort of man Stonewall Jackson was and how his life before the Civil War shaped the general he became.

“An exceptionally good tour and guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

My title says it all really. We had an excellent tour with an equally excellent guide who made the whole experience come to life. Unreservedly recommend this place.

“Great interest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

The details on the life of this famous Civil War general were most interesting. We also enjoyed walking around the garden in the back.

“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
