Why do people love Orange?

Established in 1734, Orange County was named in honor of William IV, Prince of Orange and covered an area that extended to the Mississippi River and Great Lakes. Nowadays, Orange County centers around Lake of the Woods, the Town of Gordonsville and the Town of Orange. Despite the gorgeous rolling hills and pastoral vistas, Orange County is just 60 miles from the state capital of Richmond, 70 miles from the nation’s capital, Washington, DC, 160 miles from the port city of Norfolk, and 20 miles from Charlottesville, home of Thomas Jefferson’s University of Virginia.

Here you can walk in the footsteps of James Madison, our nation’s fourth President and “Father of the Constitution,” at his beloved home Montpelier. Delight in the breathtaking views, which Madison described as “a squirrel’s jump from heaven.” Stay at one of Orange’s charming bed & breakfasts or explore the award-winning wineries, historic sites and museums, adventure and outdoor recreation, quaint shops and art galleries. Orange is a true hidden gem–a friendly hometown feel balanced with modern amenities, easy accessibility to work, health and public services, education, recreation, and points of interest.
