History Museum Specialty Museum
The Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters Museum is a historic house located at 415 North Braddock Street in the Historic District of Winchester, Virginia.HistoryThe 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.

  • Great historical location. The museum workers are very passionate and knowledgeable about Stonewall Jackson and the Shenandoah Valley Campaign. Our family are Civil War enthusiasts and we're really impressed with the Christmas Candlelight tour. We will go back in the spring.
  • Second visit, Joanna (tour guide) made the visit even better than the first! Thank you
  • This is well worth the visit....was surprised to see how many Civil War items are in this beautiful historic house; swords, old battle flags, original uniforms, furniture, etc. I was very impressed with the young lady that gave us the tour as she was very knowledgeable and interesting. Would highly recommend it.
