If you are interested in History, particularly the private life of General Jackson, then this is the place to tour. This was the only house that Stonewall ever owned. The tour is very informative, and the folks there are very helpful and friendly. I'll be back.

Stonewall Jackson's only home and the home he left for the Civil War never to return. This is a must for Civil War buffs and anyone interested in history. You will learn a great deal about Jackson and Lexington by visiting this historic home. The staff was very welcoming and the guide we had was outstanding. A visit to Lexington... More

I enjoyed the tour of the home. I learned so much that I did not know about the General. The tour was great and the guides were fantastic. They answered my every question with joy. I would certainly make another trip back.

I was passing through and decided to stop because I love history. The redhead in the gift shop/ admissions desk was so nice and informative. Jim, my tour guide, was nice and very informative. If you are a Civil War buff especially, then it is a must see.

I've been to this museum twice since August. There is a guided tour, and the second tour was completely different than the first which was great! I enjoyed learning new things both times.

I really enjoyed touring this property. The guide was well prepared and informative. The house was clean well lighted and period correct. I learned much more about the man than I knew before.

Take the tour. Plan to spend an hour. The collection within the house is primarily of actual items owned by the Jacksons which adds to the education provided by our docent. Go somewhere else to learn about Jackson's many military exploits. $8.00 very well spent.

You really get a sense of what Jackson's private life was like by visiting the house. The garden he tended to the attention to detail with the restoration of the house really brought you into the life of the man and his family. Our guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. He was easy going and encouraged questions about the house... More
