The museum's mission is to preserve Jackson’s former home and its collections and educate the public by interpreting the life, character, and times of Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson. Special emphasis is placed upon Jackson's life as a professor, church leader, businessman, husband, and community leader during the decade that he lived in Lexington and taught at Virginia Military Institute before the American Civil War.
Discover Jackson's Lexington
Jackson’s Home is nestled in the famous and beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Lexington is still reminiscent of the time when Thomas and Anna Jackson made the town their home. Come walk in Jackson’s footsteps and discover the man who became a legend.
While in town, enjoy the bustling atmosphere along Main Street, filled with shopping and dining opportunities. Our museum is also nearby the campuses of both the Virginia Military Institute and Washington & Lee University.
