Orange, Texas

Texas' easternmost city on the Sabine River boundary with Louisiana, Orange was established in 1836, the year of Texas' independence. It was named for a landmark of wild orange groves on the banks of the Sabine, as cited by early French and Spanish boatmen.

Today, Orange is both a recreational and industrial portal to Texas with abundant fresh- and salt-water fishing, hunting, and bird-watching in vast coastal marshes.

A walking tour map of downtown Orange is available from the Chamber of Commerce which visits such sites as the central fire station where an antique fire engine and fire-fighting memorabilia are displayed, plus other historic or interesting structures. Mileage marker 880 in Orange County, Texas, is the highest numbered in the nation.
