I learned a little about Jackson and it was interesting seeing where he lived. The tour guide was knowledgeable. Well worth the nominal entrance charge.

I enjoy any historical site related to Thomas J. 'Stonewall' Jackson. To be able to visit the only house that Jackson ever owned was great! Friendly employees, nice gift shop, great garden. A must see if you are in Lexington!

The Lexington home of Lt Gen Thomas J Jackson. This is the only home Jackson ever had. very good example of a nice home for the period. It is well preserved. Interesting to see Jackson's chair he used when meditating on the next day's lesson.

We thoroughly enjoyed walking the garden and looking at the outside of the home and carriage house. With a cost of $8 each we chose not to tour the home.

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.
