ORANGE, TX AIR CONDITIONING REPAIR & SERVICE
Founded in the early 1800s, the city of Orange was originally called Green Bluff, a name bestowed in honor of Sabine River boatman Reason Green. Its name was changed to Madison in 1840 to honor President James Madison, but the moniker resulted in frequent confusion with the Texas town of Madisonville. In 1858, the city received its present name.
In the late 19th century, Orange was home to a whopping 17 sawmills, making it the center of the growing Texas lumber industry. The city received its first courthouse in 1898. World War I saw the city grow substantially as a center of shipbuilding, owing to its deep-water location on the Gulf of Mexico. With the establishment of a U.S. Naval Station during World War II, the population peaked at 60,000. The last half-century has seen Orange's population decline somewhat, but it is still a center of commerce and industry in eastern Texas.
With its location on the border with Louisiana, Orange has the distinction of being the easternmost city in Texas, and it has a deep-water port right on the Gulf of Mexico. According to the 2010 Census, the city limits enclose just over 21 square miles of land.
Today, Orange is a city of just under 19,000 people, of whom just over 60 percent own and maintain their own homes. Orange is also home to nearly 2,400 locally owned businesses.
