I'm interested in Civil War history, but, truthfully, based on the name I assumed that I would find a somewhat overdone "shrine" to Jackson on this site. Fortunately, that is not the case at all - this is the small house where Jackson died of...More

It doesn't take long at all to tour this house/grounds. This is where Stonewall was taken after his arm injury, only to recover and then develop pneumonia, which caused his death. The place was purchased as a tourist location, but then eventually given to the...More

Not really a "shrine" which is good since Jackson wouldn't have liked that. It's the house he died in. No statues, no monuments. The best part is the NPS ranger who can give you dedicated attention and answer your questions about Jackson and the local...More

After passing the sign on 95 for years, we finally took an hour to visit this location. It didn't look like much, so we were pleasantly surprised to have an NPS ranger open the door and invite us inside. He did a great job, for...More

I don't know what I was expecting when I drove to this NPS site, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The site is just about 5 miles/minutes from Interstate 95 and is right next to the railroad tracks. The grounds are well...More

Park Ranger gave a descriptive story about Stonewall and events that lead up to his death. They do have restrooms and water fountains. I will bring my family here if i am ever back in this area.

There is no entertainment here, no gift shop, etc. It is just what it is, which is enough for those who know the history. It was all that I expected, and all that it advertised itself to be, hence the five-star review. A quiet, moving...More

If you are a Stonewall Jackson or Civil War history buff, don't miss this small but important location where the actual building and bed where Stonewall Jackson died is preserved. It's just a short drive from the Interstate.

We stopped in after visiting Spotsylvania Court House Battlefield. This is a very small site that features the place where General Stonewall Jackson died. The house included the bed he dir=ed on, a bench that was built from the litter he was carried on and...More

Admittedly, I am a Stonewall fanatic, and this was a must for my trip to the area. Yes, it's a little way off the main drag, but well worth the trip. The only structure on the site is the building in which Stonewall Jackson died,...More
