#Hashtag Hometown Of The Week: Orland

Every week we will feature a new hometown and share photos and facts using hashtags on social media. This week our #hashtag hometown is (North and East) Orland!

Even though there were people calling this town home as early as the late 1700’s it was officially founded in 1800 as Orland. The town was named because of an oar found on the shore by one of the first settlers (OARland). Today the town is home to about 2,225 residents.

The town is known for its beautiful scenery, lake, ponds, mountains, and streams. Great hiking trails can be found in the areas of Great Pond and Great Pond Mountain as well as nearby Hothole Valley. Residents look forward to things like blueberry season and community events like the annual River Raft Race (as seen below).

When visiting Orland we recommend going by the H.O.M.E. Co-op village because it is like its own cute little town. We it is also suggested on TripAdvisor that you stay at this awesome Yurt! Here are some photos from Orland we found on Instagram:
