"COUNTY SEAT"
300534N 0934411W chckmark_a.gif (662 bytes) The City of Orange was originally named Grien's Bluff in honor of a settler who arrived there before 1830. In 1840 the name was changed to Madison in honor of President James Madison. A post office was established in 1850, and Madison became county seat upon the organization of Orange County in 1852. Confusion with Madisonville caused the name to be changed to Orange when the city was incorporated in 1858. The pirate Jean Laffite is said to have used this site for a repair base. chckmark_a.gif (662 bytes)
