Orange County, located in the Piedmont region of North Carolina, was established in 1752 out of portions of Bladen, Granville, and Johnston counties. It was named in honor of the son of King George II, William V, the Prince of Orange. Hillsborough, the county seat, was founded in 1754 on the Eno River, and played an important role in the state's history as a center for government and commerce.

During the American Revolutionary War, Orange County was a hotbed of Patriot activity. The infamous Regulator Movement, which sought to challenge local government corruption, began here in the 1760s. In 1781, British General Charles Cornwallis and his troops occupied Hillsborough. However, shortly after, they were defeated at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, which marked a turning point in the war.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the nation's first public university to open its doors, was founded in Orange County in 1795, in the town of Chapel Hill. The establishment of the university significantly contributed to the development of the county, enhancing its prestige and cultural significance.

A fun fact about Orange County is that the famous astronaut and physicist Ronald E. McNair, who was a mission specialist on board the ill-fated Challenger shuttle in 1986, earned his Ph.D. from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, which operates an extension office in the county. As a tribute to McNair's achievements, the Ronald E. McNair Interdisciplinary Science Building was named in his honor in 1989.
