Worth a visit. Informative tour guide leads a 45 min interior tour after a short video. Modest home but great piece of history. Small, lovely gardens & sheds. Gift shop. Perfect excursion for history buffs.

My family and I went on the tour of Stonewall Jackson's house and we were very impressed. The amount of knowledge of the guide was impressive and he answered many questions. We all learned something new

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.
