We travel a lot and since you are never familiar with the area, its best to visit a welcome/visitor center. This place was friendly and had all the amenities of a big place but was packed with brochures for your pleasure.

Very nice gentleman helped us with parking, walking and some history. Start here. The downtown is very nice, many cute shops. An actual model kit store with huge inventory. My husband was thrilled.

I was in town for a conference, and took advantage of the visitors' center attached to/next to the Stonewall Jackson Hotel and Conference Center. Good information, helpful staff and convenient!

You can easily tour both buildings in 3 hours. The house (his birthplace) gives a great guided tour that lasts about an hour. The library (museum) you do at your leisure so you really spend just as much time as you like.
