A visit to Ellwood promises to be a special time for all. Visit the beautiful grounds, family cemetery where Gen. "Stonewall" Jackson's arm was buried and historic Ellwood Manor, a National Park Service property.

Tours of this 18th century home are provided by trained volunteers with the Friends of Wilderness Battlefield.

Ellwood was built in the 1790s by William Jones and has been a working farm ever since. The house served as a Confederate hospital after the Battle of Chancellorsville (1863) and as Gen. G.K. Warren's headquarters during the Battle of the Wilderness(1864).

State-of-the-art permanent exhibits were installed in the Manor in 2010.

Hours of Operation: 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. daily mid-June through mid-August; weekends and holidays May - October.
