Welcome to Historic Jackson’s Mill, the boyhood home of General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson
It was to this environment that Cummins’ nephew, Thomas Jackson, came to live in 1830 when he was six years old, following the deaths of his parents, Jonathan and Julia. Thomas spent the next 12 years here, raised by Cummins in the family traditions of milling and politics. In 1842, at the age of 18, Thomas left Cummins’ home for West Point and a distinguished military career.
