Well worth the brief visit due to the notables buried here. Be sure to avail yourself of the map which will direct you to the more important graves.

Very well kept cemetery with many old and some historic graves. Stonewall Jackson's grave is the one that most come to see. His statue covers his and his family's graves. Many of the tombstones have interesting designs and carvings on them. Very peaceful place!

While in Lexington, it's certainly worth stopping by the Cemetery. Stonewall Jackson's monument and family plot is easy enough to find in the middle of the cemetery. If you like perusing old cemeteries, there's a good mix of old and new here. Many other "famous"...More

If in the area it's worth checking out. The civil war has so much history and all of the historic places are worth visiting in my opinion.

It is my understanding that it was known as Presbyterian Cemetery and was renamed for Jackson after he was buried there in 1863
