Orange, TX Air Conditioning Repair & Service
Orange, Texas, the county seat of Orange County, lies within the Beaumont-Port Arthur Metropolitan Statistical Area in Southeast Texas near the Louisiana border. It is part of the Golden Triangle economic zone with Beaumont and Port Arthur.
The city of Orange was founded around 1830, originally called Green’s Bluff. In 1840 it was renamed Madison after U.S. President James Madison. When it was incorporated in 1858, it was given its current designation of Orange. The city developed an extensive sawmill industry, enhanced by the strategic position of Orange on the Sabine River and Gulf of Mexico. In 1916, channel dredging created a deepwater port, enhancing the importance of the shipbuilding and shipping industries to the city.
The discovery of oil in the area contributed to the economy of the area. Refineries and manufacturing were important industries during the mid-twentieth century. Today, the town is home to almost 19,000 people with manufacturing and construction contributing to almost half of employment industries. The city is a Certified Retirement Community under the GO TEXAN program.
Things to Do
The Stark Museum of Art houses an important collection of American Western art, much of it acquired over a 50-year period by its founder, Lutcher Stark, a resident of Orange. Collections include a five-volume edition of Audubon’s Birds of America and more than 200 works by Paul Kane, whose paintings depict the lives of Native Americans from Canada and the northwestern United States.
For golf enthusiasts, Sunset Grove Country Club is home to a course designed by Donald Ross in 1926, commissioned by Lutcher Stark. The property includes an 18-hole course, clubhouse, swimming pool and tennis court. It is open to USGA members, their guests and members from international clubs who may be granted reciprocal privileges.
Other recreational venues in Orange include the Shangri-La Gardens, a 252-acre botanical garden and nature center with hands-on activities for children, nature trails and a bird sanctuary. The Riverfront Boardwalk and Pavilion along the Sabine River is the site of several outdoor festivals hosted by the city throughout the year.
Located at the junction of the Sabine River and Gulf of Mexico, Orange is strategically placed and well-connected to major cities by road and air. The Jack Brooks Regional Airport provides commercial air service to Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston. Interstate 10 connects Orange to Beaumont and Houston to the west and Lake Charles and Lafayette, Louisiana, to the east. U. S. Highway 90 and State Highway 87 join I-10 at Orange. State Highway 62 intersects the city from the south.
