The Historic Aerial Viewer provides a series of aerial photographs of sections of Orange and shows how the city changed over time.

Historic Context Statements

A historic context statement is a narrative history of a specific theme, topic, or place that provides a framework for evaluating a property’s historic significance. The City has developed a number of historic context statements related to early settlements and historical themes that represent historic properties in Orange.

The historic context statements were prepared by historic preservation consultant Chattel, Inc. as part of the 2010 General Plan Update.
