  • History

    • The town’s history dates back to May 1666 when Connecticut settlers landed on the shores of the Passaic River. The township’s founders purchased land, formerly known as the Newark Settlement a few months later in July 1666. Residents who wished to farm moved westward into surrounding communities and eventually purchased land from the Lenapes. In the beginning Orange’s roots were mainly focused on agricultural. In 1807 the Township of Orange was founded and in 1860 it was incorporated as the Town of Orange.  In 1872 the Town of Orange was incorporated as the City of Orange Township.  Because of its proximity to railroads, canals and a network of roads and rivers, Orange became an industrial city, known for tanning, footwear, hat making, beer brewery and light manufacturing. Factory employees lived in the many multi-family dwellings dotted around the commercial districts. The wealthy industrialist built homes in Seven Oaks Parks and many resided in neighborhoods close to the Historic Montrose Park section of South Orange.
