The gardens and house are open to visitors. The tour was well worth taking. My guide was excellent and happy to answer questions (which was great because I knew little about the American Civil ware being from another country).

I'm a Civil War buff and still learned stuff from our pleasant tour guide. It helps to learn the personal side of a famous general

When visiting Lexington, be sure to include the Stonewall Jackson House on your tour. The house is quaint and lovely. It's presented much as it would've been during Jackson's time. Our tour guide, did a wonderful job, she was very engaging and knowledgeable. The gift shop has a lot of nice trinkets and books available.

The tour gave a personal insight to what type of person that Stonewall Jackson was. The house had been restored to that time period as close as they could.

As someone interested in the Civil War, I enjoyed the tour several years ago. I decided to take the tour again with my wife and daughter (who are not Civil War enthusiasts) because I thought they would find it interesting, which they did. Jackson's home is an interesting example of a 19th century home. The tour guide was very interesting... More

This is a great tour that won't take up too much of your time. My favorite time to go is at Christmas when all the Christmas decorations are out! The tour guides dress up and you find out why you have to walk up all those stairs in the front! Also check out the super cute gift shop at the... More

We stopped by the Lexington Welcome Center because my husband wanted to get some information about the George Marshall exhibit. We found out that it didn't open until 11:00 am that day and the gentleman suggested we visit the Stonewall Jackson house that was nearby. We could keep our car parked where it was at and take a brief walk.... More

My husband and I visited the Stonewall Jackson House on a visit to Lexington. We were amazed at the amount of furnishings that actually belonged to the Jackson family. Our guide was well informed and was easy to hear and understand. A short video before the tour is always a good introduction. The tour itself lasts about 30 minutes. For... More

I'm pretty sure there is a ghost even though our tour guide said there weren't any ghosts. The door rattle and she asked me to see who was there and of course no one was there. I said now you have a ghost. Interesting visit. Doesn't take very long.
