Please join us in welcoming Brian Smith to our Road Crew team.  Brian hails from West Topsham, VT and is an avid outdoorsman.  Brian enjoys riding his Harley motorcycle and hunting and fishing.  If you see Brian on the roads, please stop and say hello and welcome him to Orange.
 
This week, May 19th-25th, is National Public Works Week. If you see one of our Road Crew members this week, please stop and thank them for a job well done. They work tirelessly to maintain the roads all year long fixing ditches, culverts and other road problems in Orange and they keep us safe all winter long with plowed roads.  

The Town of Orange was chartered August 11, 1781.  Located in the N.W. Corner of Orange County, the town is bounded S. by Washington and Corinth; E. by Topsham, N. by Groton, Harris & Goshen Gores and Plainfield, and W. by Barre.

Orange was “largely a farming town,” when the “top population was reached in 1830 with about 1000 people and over 5000 sheep grazing on the hillsides.”  The population in the 2000 census was 951.  The tallest peaks in town are Knox Mt. and Butterfield Mt. both over 3000 feet tall.  It was assumed that both mountains were named after the early settlers living in town.
