The city of Orange is one of the most unique in Orange County
, in that local home and apartment residents have embraced their history in ways other communities have not.
While many other towns around Orange demolished old homes and districts in the 1960s, the city of Orange chose to preserve them, and in doing so they created a historic district that has received national acclaim and thrills apartment residents to this day. The Old Towne, Orange Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997 and features one square mile of homes and buildings that were built during the city's original incorporation. More than 1,400 of the buildings here were built before the 1940s and the district itself is the largest residential historic region in California, according to the Old Towne Preservation Association.
On a visit to Orange's Old Towne, apartment residents can get an up-close look at a number of fantastic architectural styles, including Prairie, Bungalow, Mediterranean, Victorian and Spanish Colonial. Aside from getting an engaging experience enjoying the architectural delights of Old Towne, apartment residents in Orange also visit the district for its burgeoning commercial destinations. Old Towne is not the only place to find great shopping - apartment residents also flock to the Block at Orange. This open-air shopping mall features dozens of retailers and entertainment options.
Orange Plaza is another historic area located in the city, and apartment renters head to the district, also known locally as "the Circle," for the annual Orange International Street Fair, held each Labor Day.
