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.

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

This place is off the beaten path (about 5 miles from I-95) but worth the detour. This house is where Stonewall Jackson died following friendly fire nearby. The house is preserved and includes some original items. Your visit will be short, but you'll learn a...More

In beautiful quite serene area about 5 miles off the interstate. Worth a visit. The room where Jackson died is almost as it was the day he died down to the clock which is still keeping time. The guide on duty was excellent and gave...More
