For Fifty Two Years the Orland Historical Society has preserved artifacts, genealogies and historical documents pertaining to the initial settlement and the growth of our town. The museum is housed in the  Over 100 year old Town Hall in the heart of the Orland village. The exhibits depict the life style and customs of the early settlers.


 Mission Statement:  is an independent library that collects, preserves, makes accessible, and communicates manuscripts and other materials in order to promote the study of the history of Orland, a mission it has pursued since 1966.


Vision Statement: is committed to the principle that public knowledge of the Oland's past is fundamental to its future. As an independent library, we remain true to our vision of building a future for our past.

The Society will continue to safeguard its extraordinary collections and improve and protect its historic landmark building. Staff will work in an environment that encourages and values collaboration.
