The Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters Museum is a historic house located at 415 North Braddock Street in the Historic District of Winchester, Virginia.See Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters and all Winchester has to offer by arranging your trip with our Winchester vacation maker.
The Gothic Revival style house was built in 1854 by local dentist William McP. Fuller, who named it "Alta Vista" for its scenic view over open hillsides facing east across Winchester. Fuller sold it in 1856 to Lieutenant Colonel Lewis Tilghman Moore, commander of the 31st Virginia Militia. Later, while commanding the 4th Virginia Infantry in the Confederate States Army, Moore offered his home to serve as the headquarters for Major General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. Jackson moved into the house in November 1861, shortly after taking command of the Valley District of the Department of Northern Virginia. Jackson was joined by his wife, Mary Anna, in December 1861. From this house, Jackson planned his Shenandoah Valley defenses and campaigns, starting with the Romney Expedition. The Jacksons lived in the house until March 1862, when the general left Winchester to begin his Valley Campaign.

My family and I had decided to visit the Museum as we stayed in town for vacation. Our tour guide Andrew did a phenomenal job educating us on the area, the headquarters, and related topics. At the end of the tour we had found out that Andrew had been with the Stonewall Jackson Headquarters tours for only a month. My family and I were shocked and impressed by how well informed and prepared he was. We were wanting more even when the tour came to an end!! Thank you Andrew, we wish you luck!!
I have a very big interest in the civil war, I've been a civil war reactor for 23 years and I never saw so many real things own by stonewall Jackson in one place. So if your really in to the war this is a stopping place on your tour of Virginia that is a must. As for the pieces in side well I don't want to ruin the surprise ,but I will just say this you want be disappointed.
