We visited on 15th September 2016 as part of a two day visit to Lexington. Both found this an interesting visit. Firstly we had a leisurely wander around the little herb and vegetable garden at the rear of the house (no charge for this) and the small barn containing carriages. The guide we met inside was pleasant and informative and... 更多
Sorry I know it's history, but the price I wouldn't go Interesting from outside and that's free, I am really finding anything more to say, as we were dissapointed
Interesting tour of the home ...our guide was very informative about the history of the house. Loved the garden with all the original types of plants that were grown there by Jackson himself. Good short film about Jackson also. Very nice gift shop. Enjoyed the tour.
The stop was a short 6 mile detour from RTE64 west. For any U.S Civil War historian you just have to stop. Knowing I would never pass that way again. I was very impressed by the tour, the knowledgable voluteer staff
The tour is advertised as 30 minutes but took almost an hour. There was no focus on the Civil War, but rather on the day to day life of Major Jackson and his family in the 27 months they lived in the home. The tour guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The garden was incredible.
If you are interested in Stonewall Jackson, this is a good place to check out. A guide will lead you on the tour, which , along with a film, takes about a half hour. A small garden is in the rear of the house. This was the only house ever owned by Jackson. Only about 5 minutes from VMI.
Visited here to understand "Stonewall Jackson"... Nice house with a trivial attempt at interpretation of this complex figure... The explanation about the house was poor at best and nothing significant about the man... Visit if you want to see an old house with very few of his actual possessions... Go somewhere else if you want to learn about the man...
This was a very fun,informative visit. Started with a tour through the house, a short video, then a question and answer session.. Although it was us and another couple only, the narrator went out of his way to accommodate us. Then a trip to the affordable gift shop finished the visit.
Enjoyed the short movie and tour of the house. It really focused on his family life and his teaching at Virginia Military Academy and not really the civil war. The stove in the kitchen was really interesting as most people were still cooking in open fireplaces at the time. All of the rooms were nicely laid out with some original... 更多
Beautiful home. This used to be the hospital at one time and I was born here, then a new hospital was built in the 50's, Stonewall Jackson Hospital.
