They were very helpful when it came to my grandfather who is 91 and can't stand for long. It wasn't something I was intrigued by but was someone else's choice. It's not much to see although the guide was knowledgeable. I wouldn't waste the time.

Any student of the American Civil War will know something about Stonewall Jackson. A guided visit to his family home will bring out the domestic and family sides of the teacher and warrior. Although extensively renovated, there are a number of Jackson's personal possessions in the house, which helps bring both the man and his home to life. The kitchen... More

They only take you thru 4 small rooms. Not much to see, the tour guide was boring and yelled at me for leaning against the wall. (I was suffering from back pain from long walk) Better use of your time to see Virginia Military Institute museum and the Lee Chapel/museum, and both are FREE.

Nice place to get to know the man, family values, and his beloved home and environment. Don't forget VMI! GW and Lee university, and so much more....you could spend days here and not see it all!

If you're a civil war buff and you're wanting to learn more about "Stonewall" Jackson then you're going to be disappointed. When Jackson lived in this house he was between wars and they make a point of telling you that and emphasizing this is Jackson as the Civilian. I came here as part of a group event and this was...

This house has very few original artifacts but does display period pieces. His daughter arranged items as they are displayed. Mr. and Mrs. Jackson resided in this home between wars. He was an instructor at VMI at the time. Therefore, it was prior to him being nicknamed "Stonewall".

Lexington is a dellightful little town . We stopped here on our way to Charlottesville and began in the Visitor Centre where the staff were really helpful. We were also able to leave our car in the car park at the centre at no cost for the duration of our visit which was great. The Stonewall Jackson House is about... More

We visited on 15th September 2016 as part of a two day visit to Lexington. Both found this an interesting visit. Firstly we had a leisurely wander around the little herb and vegetable garden at the rear of the house (no charge for this) and the small barn containing carriages. The guide we met inside was pleasant and informative and... More
