The Stonewall Jackson Hotel is a historic hotel in Staunton, Virginia, built in 1924. Designed by H.L. Stevens, it is considered an excellent example of the architect's work in the Colonial Revival style.[1] Located in the mezzanine the hotel is the only known working 1924 Wurlitzer Organ.[citation needed] The organ has been precisely restored to it original condition and tone. The hotel's neon sign was erected about 1950, and "has become a major downtown landmark".[1] The hotel completed a major restoration in 2005 and is a member of the National Trust for Historic Preservation Historic Hotels of America.[2]

The Stonewall Jackson Hotel is operated by Crestline Hotels and Resorts.
