Future Confederate Lt. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson and his second wife, Mary Anna Morrison, owned a house on Washington Street from 1859 to 1861, while he taught at the Virginia Military Institute. It is the only house he ever owned. A typical Valley I-house built for Cornelius Dorman in 1801, its facade was altered and a stone addition erected before Jackson bought it. In 1907 the Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital opened in the house, and it became a museum in 1954. In the 1970s the Historic Lexington Foundation restored the house to its appearance during Jackson's occupancy. Since 1995 it has been owned by the Stonewall Jackson Foundation.
