Are you interested in the history of the City of Orange? Join the Orange Community Historical Society. Our mission is to commemorate the rich heritage of our community. Our purpose is to collect photographs, written materials and related ephemera, promote research, events, activities and programs celebrating Orange history, sponsor local history endeavors, and remain self supporting through memberships, donation bequests and special projects. We Welcome Everyone.

Our members enjoy The Orange Tribune, the official newsletter of the OCHS, the opportunity to support and contribute to the preservation of Orange history, meeting with members of the community knowledgeable about Orange history, and discounts on OCHS merchandise.

We host and organize projects such as the Historical Walking Tours, preservation of historical facades, and contribution to the local history archives. We provide avenues for oral and video history interviews and access for the community to view and request copies of historical photographs.
