Irasburg is the chief town.  This county is bounded north by Lower Canada, east by Essex and Caledonia Counties, south by Caledonia County, and west by Franklin and Lamoille Counties.  This county lies between the eastern and western ranges of the Green Mountains.  The surface is generally handsome, and the soil well adapted for wheat, rye, and grass; the climate is rather too cold for corn, and some parts of the county are low and marshy.

   Orleans County is watered by Missisco, Black, Barton, and other rivers.  It contains more ponds than any county in the State.  Much of its trade goes to Canada by way of Memphremagog Lake, which lies in this county and Canada.
