Just above the “elbow” of Cape Cod, Orleans is a small town on the Cape. Like most towns on the Cape, Orleans has a rich history that is still reflected in its culture today. With classic architecture, it comes as no surprise that this town has been populated for hundreds of years.
The beaches in Orleans really allow residents to stop and smell the roses. Smooth sand, lovely water, and a smaller population make for the perfect beach going experience. Not one for the beach? Orleans has a few beautiful parks, and loads of historical sites to visit on a summer vacation, or a weekend in town. Typical of most shoreline towns, Orleans runs on an industry of fishing and agriculture.
True to its roots, Orleans has a ripe entertainment culture as well. The famous Orleans Arena Theatre is in downtown Orleans. Founded in the mid 1900’s, this theatre has hosted a slew of plays that entertain and delight residents.

A home and a lot! I moved here in the early 1800's as a cottage. My new property had lush meadows & Gentle hills. Prominent families raised their kids here as I grew. They even lifted me up to the 2nd story, gave me a better view of the sea and built rooms below to handle visitors who came to hunt & fish at the shore. I became a boarding house called "The Willows". Word of my beauty spread. Then famous people from other parts of the country owned me. One donated some of my property to the town to enjoy in natural beauty for years to come. My new family replaced my worn out parts a brought me much joy. I saw them grow, whispered goodbye as they climbed the school bus & watched them play. My family is moving on & once again I'm looking for a new buyer to enjoy me & my building lot
