A look at the South

The house was very interesting; our docent gave an informative tour of the home. Another look at life in the south during the civil war era.

Confederate General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson's house is situated comfortably in the quaint and walkable downtown Lexington. My humans and I visited the house with a large tour group, so our visit was planned, but walk-ins are welcome. STAFF: Fine. The tour guide that my humans and I were guided by was nice and knew the material sufficiently. The other staff... More

This is a well-maintained and carefully thought out museum. The docent was knowledgeable and friendly. The garden was just beginning to be planted but looks like it would be wonderful in the summer. Recommended for history buffs.

Driving up I81 I saw the historical marker sign and had to stop. This is a short drive from the interstate with free parking within walking distance. The plot of land is small so the tour doesn't take very long. Well worth stopping, if nothing else to see the simplicity in which he lived and to learn a thing or... More

If you're a Civil War buff, definitely worth a stop. House is restored to how it looked when Jackson was living there. Was a hospital after his widow turned it over to the community and one of the people in our tour group was actually born there!

This is a very education and informative site to see. This is the period before the Civil War while Jackson was an professor at the Virginia Military Academy. The tour shows how Jackson lived, one of his gardens and what a modest man he was. Jackson was dedicated to teaching his, and local slaves to read and write; which was... More

Anyone who is interested in Stonewall this will be a must. The tour is only about 30-40 min. They tell you about his early childhood, about his struggles and his life in Lexington Virginia. How he helped Amy (the cook) can tomatoes and he loved his home. People come from all over the world to hear his story. But this... More

Part of the charm of Lexington is it's historical significance in the wonderful blend of perspectives and events that shaped America's history. This stop is a must.

Our tour guide was deeply knowledgeable about the house, and had even been born there in the days when it was a hospital. His stories about Jackson's life explained how life was like back then, and weren't about Civil War battles or pro-Confederate. The house is in the middle of the town, and very easy to walk to.
