Orange County, New York

Orange County is located in the mid Hudson Valley region of New York. The county was named for William III of Orange, who was held in high regard by the original settlers of the county. Orange County was one of the original twelve counties established in the Province of New York in 1683 along with Dutchess County, among others. Rockland County split off from Orange County in 1798. The first Court in Orange County was installed in 1801.
