Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 28, 1967):
In the months preceding his famous Shenandoah Valley Campaign (March-June 1862), Confederate Maj. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson (1824-1863) used this Gothic Revival house as his headquarters, where he was joined by his wife, Mary Anna. Jackson's rapid maneuvering in the valley kept valuable Federal forces from joining the well-conceived Peninsular assault on Richmond by the Army of the Potomac, and contributed to the failure of Union Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan's strategy.
