Notes
Survey number HABS VA-637
Building/structure dates: 1828 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1928 subsequent work
Significance: "The Jackson Shrine" was built by John Thornton in 1828, and was used as a dwelling and doctor's office until December, 1862, when it became headquarters for General Fitzhugh Lee, Commander of the Calvary Brigade of the Confederate Army during the Civil War. In the spring of 1863, it was used as a hospital for General Stonewall Jackson, who died there on May 10. Acquired by the Richmond, Fredericksburg, and Potomac Railroad in 1911, the building underwent restoration in 1927 and 1928, and was deeded to the United States Government in 1936. This set of measured drawings defines the existing structure and is not a record of the original architectural details.
