South Orange Village History

The Lenape Native Americans were the original inhabitants of the region that is now known as the South Orange Village. The land was purchased from them in the year 1666 by Robert Treat, and in the very same year Newark was founded on the banks of the Passaic River. The region was named "Orange" after William of Orange, one of the rulers of England. Though the official incorporation date of the South Orange Village is May 4, 1869, it was then formed within the South Orange Township. In 1904 the Village of South Orange was separated from South Orange Township.
