I love how Orange, MA is such a small town, the community is a great community to have people to lean on. The town itself isn't a very thriving town but I believe some changes are in the works to be made to really change this town and get it to thrive again.

Great small town in western Massachusetts. I grew up in and still reside in Orange. The community is overwhelming with support, specially when someone or a family is in need. It's an everyone knows everyone type of place.
Orange is a nice small town, its where the show castle rock was filmed. our town is very broke, and we need new elementary schools. the schools dont have a lot of school sprirt and there is no apathy. the high school is nice when the kids arent juuling.
