Our Story

Established in 1734, Orange County’s story is an authentically American tale. Rich in agricultural and intellectual gifts, our natives and immigrants sowed the seeds of innovation and independence from their niche in the Blue Ridge foothills. From the Revolutionary War to the Civil War and the founding of the Constitution, Orange County is a cradle of American patriotism. Orange County has an extraordinary sense of place. Whether you’re strolling down the tree-lined boulevards in our downtowns or revisiting America’s roots at Montpelier, Orange County is a community where the past is abundantly present.

Our Setting

We’re nestled in the Piedmont region of Virginia, famed for rolling hills and world-renowned wines. Proximity to the Blue Ridge Mountain foothills lends itself to spectacular views and sunsets. We’re close to major cities, but a mindset away.
