Who we are

For more than six decades, the Orange County Historical Museum has worked to bring history and people together.

 The generosity of museum founders and supporters nurtured that vision and today the museum boasts an exceptional collection of historically significant objects. We are proud to be a valuable resource for Orange County residents and a tourist destination for visitors to Hillsborough and Orange County.    


We will be closed on Sunday, December 9th due to inclement weather.
