We almost passed on this as we had to drive home. This is THE best preserved house/museum we have ever visited. We have been to many Civil War museums. This is by far the best collection of Stonewall Jackson artifacts we have ever seen. Kudos to the ladies who give the tour. Outstanding!

My wife and I and another couple went to this tour not expecting a whole lot, but were presently surprised. The tour guide was amazing! He was very interesting and extremely knowledgeable. Learned so much about Jackson that I never knew. Only $5 to get in, but the tour was worth $20. Mary Tyler Moore is a descendant of the... More

Jackson's winter headquarters from 1861-62 is an amazing historic site. It offers multiple period pieces, many unique to Stonewall himself: prayer book, locks of hair, prayer table, camp chair with original upholstery, office desk, and many others. The building ranks among the top civil war sites I've visited. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. Outstanding! Highly recommended!

Tour guides are knowledgeable and there is a lot of history packed into this small downtown location. The site is within easy walking distance of the main downtown Winchester area. If you enjoy history and are in Winchester, you have to check this place out.

If you are into civil war history at all then this should definitely be on your to do list for winchester. My husband and I went here and took the tour. It was short and sweet (approx half an hour), but the tour guide - Brian - was extremely personable and knowledgeable. Very well maintained and interesting.

The grounds were nicely maintained and have a period cannon out front. Our guide had a very good knowledge of the area, contents and history.

We made a stop at this historical site while in Winchester. We were greeted by friendly staff. Our tour guide was a very nice older lady who shared alot of history with us and willing and eager to answer questions. The tour was about an hour. I think it is worth a stop whether or not you are a civil... More
