The Village of Orangeville is nestled along the banks of the Richland Creek in northwest Illinois. The perfect place to raise a family, open a business, or even just visit for a day trip or weekend getaway, we're about two miles south of the borderline between Illinois and Wisconsin. Nearby cities include Freeport, IL and Monroe, WI, as well as Rockford, IL, Dubuque, IA, and Madison, WI.
Founded in 1851 (and incorporated in 1867), our town has remained one of the most charming places in the Midwest. In addition to its picturesque landscape, there's also lots of stuff to do! Local attractions and events include the Jane Addams Trail, the Brush Creek golf course, Orangeville's Annual Firemen's Festival, our Summer Concert Series, our Water Tower Park, the Orangeville Wetlands and historic downtown Orangeville. The education system in Orangeville (OCUSD #203) is superb, boasting small class sizes that enhance learning and many extracurricular activities.
In the early 1900s, Harry Hartzell, long-time editor of the Orangeville Alert, called us "The Best Little Town on Earth!" For generations, our townspeople and our visitors have agreed with this sentiment. Come see why for yourself!
