Orange County

Orange County

Orange County’s first European settlement was Germanna, formed when Governor Alexander Spotswood settled 12 immigrant families from Westphalia, Germany in 1714. The settlement had a total of 42 people. Orange County later became the home of the 4th President of the United States and “Father of the Constitution”, James Madison. Madison built his home, Montpelier, a 2,700 acre estate just outside of the town of Orange and hosts an annual steeplechase in November.
