LOCATION HISTORY

Before the Civil War, the Exchange Hotel with its high ceiling parlors and grand veranda welcomed passengers from the two rail lines: the Virginia Central Railroad and the Alexandria Railroad. Soon war began. Troops, supplies, and wounded were transported on these railroads to Gordonsville. The
Exchange Hotel became the Gordonsville Receiving
Hospital which provided care for 70,000 soldiers,
both Confederate and Union. In the reconstruction period, this hospital served the newly freed slaves as a
Freedman's Bureau Hospital. As the United States healed and the railroads boomed, this graceful building returned to its role of hotel.  Now fully restored, the hotel is a museum dedicated to the Civil War era.
 

TEAM OBJECTIVE
 

Team "Twisted" rolled into Gordonsville, Va a little unsure of what to expect from The Exchange Hotel.  Some were feeling a little uneasy from the stories about activities that have happened in the certain locations around the property.  It was also our first location with 3 different locations to investigate. But after arriving and walking the property and meeting up with tour director Angel May, we soon realized that we were up for what was ahead.  A special thanks goes out to Angel and Chris for helping us to understand the history of the hotel, as well as its many occupants that still reside there.  Our objective was to try to communicate with the many spirits, and possibly catch one of them on film.

INVESTIGATION PHOTOS

Pay very close attention to what is standing at the top of the
stairs in this next picture.  This photo was taken during our
pre-walk with Angel May.  What an awesome catch!!!

INVESTIGATION CONCLUSION
HAUNTED!!!

Team Twisted Paranormal went into the investigation of The Exchange Hotel a little guarded because of info found from previous investigations held there.  After getting through the prewalk with the help of Angel Mays, the team was prepared to get started.  As you can tell we captured some great evidence!!!!  These are only a third of the great EVPs captured, and the picture of the shadow figure at the top of the 3rd floor stairs was just another great piece of evidence captured for Team Twisted!!
This is a must place for all paranormal teams!!!!! Just give Angel a call and you won't be disappointed.  We will be going back!!!
