Bucks for Bricks


The land that is now called "Orange, Connecticut" was first settled by Europeans in 1639 as part of the Town of Milford. It was purchased from the Paugusset tribe by the Rev. Peter Prudden for six coats, 10 blankets, one kettle, 12 hatchets, 12 hoes, two dozen knives and a dozen small mirrors. In 1822, Orange was incorporated as an independent town. Today, we celebrate it's 200th birthday! To volunteer for bicentennial activities, kindly call any of the committee members individually, or email adenny@orange-ct.gov.The Orange Chamber of Commerce will offer a Commemorative Brick Project as part of the Town of Orange Bicentennial Celebration.
