Orange County Overview

Created in 1764, and named for William III, also widely known as William of Orange, was sovereign Prince of Orange from birth, Stadtholder of Holland, Zeeland, Utrecht, Gelderland and Overijssel in the Dutch Republic from 1672 and King of England, Ireland and Scotland from 1689 until his death in 1702. It is a coincidence that his regnal number (III) was the same for both Orange and England. As King of Scotland, he is known as William II. He is sometimes informally known in Northern Ireland and Scotland as “King Billy.” Orange County in Virginia had a population of 33,481 as of the 2010 census, its county seat and largest community is Orange. Orange County is home to Montpelier, the 2,700-acre estate of James Madison, the 4th President of the United States and oft-hailed “Father of the Constitution.” The county celebrated its 275th anniversary in 2009. In 1991, the Virginia Landmarks Register designated approximately 31,200 acres in the county’s western portion as the Madison-Barbour Rural Historic District. The largest such district in the Commonwealth includes James Madison’s Montpelier, James Barbour’s Thomas Jefferson-designed Barboursville mansion (now in ruins), several plantations, portions of the Monticello Viticultural Area, as well as numerous individual sites listed on the National Register. The Gordonsville Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984, the Rapidan Historic District in 1987, and the Orange Commercial Historic District added to the NRHP in 1999. Although the county has only two square miles of water area, it is home to several lakes: The Rapidan River defines the northern boundary of the county, Lake Orange – a 124-acre public lake southeast of the Town of Orange, and the 500-acre Main Lake in Lake of the Woods community. With 341 square miles of land, the terrain is characterized by rolling hills, generally increasing in altitude and slope as they continue westward toward the Blue Ridge Mountains. The highest point is Cowherd Mountain at 1,196 ft, just west of Gordonsville. Orange County lies within the watersheds of both the Rappahannock River and the York River, both of which drain into the Chesapeake Bay. Adjacent counties are: Greene to the west, Albemarle to the southwest, Louisa to the south, Spotsylvania to the east, Culpeper to the north, and Madison to the northwest. The Wilderness Battlefield in the eastern portion of the county lies within the Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park. Of the ten zip codes used by the county, the largest is 22508.
