This is the center of Orange and is the Old Towne Orange with many shops and eateries. Big fountain and is on the Historical Registry. Walk around the area and look at all the old buildings and Antique shops.

We live not far from here and walk into town at least once a month. We love just walking around the plaza and checking out the antique stores. There are also some great restaurants in the plaza.

This was included on our Old Towne Orange Walking Tour. The history was interesting. It was developed by Mr. Chapman and Mr. Glassell to clean up the center of town and have a place for the townspeople to gather.

Whether you call it "the Circle" (BZZZ, try again) or "the Plaza" (Ding! Ding! Ding!) this is, without a doubt, the centerpiece jewel of Old Towne Orange. It's a place to meet, a place to shop, and always a beautiful place to relax and watch...More

In the middle of the plaza, surrounded by the traffic circle, is the Plaza Square Park. It's a great place to sit and take in the whole Old Town area.
