Why drive to Orange, and purchase at Reynolds Subaru!

Town of Orange
Orange County Courthouse
The Town is named in honor of William IV, Prince of Orange. The Town of Orange became Orange County's judicial seat in 1749 when Culpeper County was cut off making the previous courthouse location at Raccoon Ford very far from the center of the County. The present courthouse was constructed in 1858. The Town was incorporated in 1872. Although fire destroyed much of the town in 1908, many buildings from the 1800's still remain. The Town remains the county seat, as well as the commercial and retail center of the county.

The Town is rich with history. The courthouse and St. Thomas' Episcopal Church, Robert E. Lee's place of worship during the winter of 1863-64, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Civil War Museum at the Exchange Hotel

This beautifully restored Greek revival structure was built as a railroad hotel in 1860. Before the Civil War, The Exchange Hotel, with its high ceiling parlors and grand veranda, welcomed passengers from two rail lines: the Virginia Central Railroad and the Orange Alexandria Railroad. During the war soldiers, supplies and the wounded were transported on these railroads to Gordonsville. The hotel became The Receiving Hospital, which provided care for 70,000 soldiers, Confederate and Union. During the reconstruction period, this hospital served newly freed slaves as a Freedman's Bureau Hospital. The museum presents several re-enactments year round. Please visit the museum website to see current happenings.
