Orange County history
Orange County incorporates the towns of Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Hillsborough, Efland and a portion of Mebane, but there is still a large unincorporated rural area as well. Orange County, especially Hillsborough, is steeped in Revolutionary War history and served as the home of the State Legislature during the war.
Most of Orange County lies west of Chapel Hill and north of Hillsborough.
Life in Orange County and Orange County Neighborhoods
Unincorporated Orange County still offers large tracts of land in a reasonable (less than 45 minutes) commute to employment centers in the Triangle. Over the past 20 years small developers have created new communities which make buying a new home on a large lot a dream within reach for many.
