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...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.

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...More

why would Gen.jackson sit and look at the wall each night?

Response from Taylor B | Reviewed this property |
He was a very religious man. He would sit and look at the wall and meditate. He also would memorize his lecture for the following day's class at VMI.
