Orange County Notes

"Orange County, Be it remembered..." With those very important sounding words as the first entry in the records, Orange County, Virginia began. 

At the first meeting of the Orange County Court, held January 21, 1734 (Old Style), there was much business to be taken care to organize the new county. Much of that is contained in the continuation of that first entry below. We thought it appropriate that the first entry of Orange County Courthouse Notes on our new web site should look back to the very beginnings of the County's rich history.
