Fodor's Review

The 1854 home of this civil war general is now a museum filled with his personal memorabilia. Jackson used this house as his base of operations during the Valley Campaign in 1861–62. Among the artifacts on display are his prayer book and camp table. The reproduction wallpaper was a gift from the actress Mary Tyler Moore; it was her great-grandfather Lieutenant Colonel Lewis T. Moore who lent Jackson the use of the house. A $10 block ticket purchased at the museum also includes entry to two nearby historic attractions: George Washington's Office Museum, a preserved log cabin where Washington briefly lived during the French and Indian War, and Abram's Delight Museum, the oldest residence in Winchester. The stone house was owned by Isaac Hollingsworth, a prominent Quaker.
