The Exchange Hotel Restored

Gordonsville, Virginia 

The Exchange Hotel is the only building still standing in Virginia that was used as a receiving hospital during the Civil War. By the early 1970s, the hotel had fallen on hard times and was near ruin. Historic Gordonsville Inc. acquired the property in 1971 and began restoration. The Exchange Hotel was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for reading Photography In Place.

A newspaper clipping dated January 27, 1972, shows the hotel just before restoration.
