Exceedingly Rich in Historic and Scenic Beauty

Established in 1734, Orange County was named in honor of William, Prince of Orange and covered an area that extended to the Mississippi River and Great Lakes. 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 our charming bed & breakfasts, inns or hotels. Enjoy our Southern hospitality and fine dining. Explore our award-winning wineries, historic sites and museums, adventure and outdoor recreation, quaint shops and art galleries. There is something fun for everyone in Orange County that you will find Simply Stunning!
