I looked for something to do in the area and came across this! I thought it would be cool to get a picture of the grave stone. What I got was an educational tour through the manor, very friendly and knowledgeable guides, and a great...More

We passed this by. While the purpose of our trip was to research monuments, memorials, and the purpose they serve today, this spot does not deserve your time unless you really want to follow the death trip of "Stonewall" Jackson. The countryside is beautiful, so...More

Instead go for the Lacy/Ellwood House. This 18th century farm house is well worth a visit. Much of the interior is original and the rest has been sympathetically restored. The volunteer docents are very knowledgeable about the house, the various owners and its roles in...More

Elmwood is the best place to visit. Hiking trails if you like. Short walk from the house to Jackson’s arm burial site. Well restored house, an interpretive program inside. Wonder Piece of history.

A great "back in time trip" as we ventured off from the I-95 path on our way to Florida. The house closes at 5, but the surrounding grounds are open until sunset. First time I ever learned about a key being used to make adjustments...More

I didn't know the history of Stonewall Jackson, but learned all about him on our trip. This was an interesting stop. Unfortunately the park was closed when we got there, but were still able to walk back there. There's quite a lot of walking to...More

For U.S. Civil War enthusias, it is a must see place. For those who are not familiar with who Jackson is, good to learn and see about history.
