More About Orleans Real Estate

Orleans History

Orleans was first settled in the late 1600s by Pilgrims from the Plymouth Colony who were dissatisfied with the poor soil condition further north.  Captured twice by the British during the Revolutionary War, Orleans was named in honor of Louis Philippe II, Duke of Orleans in recognition of France’s support for the Thirteen Colonies during the War.  Early town organizers specifically avoided selecting a British or “English” name and Orleans lives on as the town name to this day.  Windmills dotting the landscape are a testament to the area’s early reliance on salt-making as a major industry – the windmills were used to pump salt water into shallow vaults for evaporation.  The Jonathan Young Windmill on Route 28 is a popular icon of this earlier time.

Orleans Housing

Housing stock includes both year-round homes ranging from Cape Cod-style properties to ranches and stately colonials.  Orleans also features a number of waterfront estates and oversized “cottages” that provide magnificent views of the harbor as well as deeded pond rights.  Along with Brewster, Eastham, and Wellfleet, Orleans belongs to the Nauset Regional School District set against the backdrop of the National Seashore and Nauset Light house.  Each town operates an elementary school for their own students and then combines middle and high school students in the regional school.

Orleans Location

Orleans is located in the Lower Cape and has frontage on both the Atlantic Ocean and Cape Cod Bay.  It is bordered by Eastham to the west,  Brewster to the east and Harwich to the southeast.  It is located 36 miles east of the Sagamore Bridge and 90 miles southeast of Boston.

Orleans and Eastham Share History But Offer Different Summer Vibes

They may share a common history, but Orleans and Eastham certainly offer different summer vibes. Originally known as Nauset in the 1600s, the name changed to Eastham by the mid-century mark. At that time, Orleans was simply a part of Eastham, which was sometimes called the South Precinct or the South Parish. It wasn’t until the late 1700s that Orleans became its own town, named after France’s Duke of Orleans. While today both towns have vacation and seasonal rentals, they feel quite... Read More

The Legacy of the Southward Inn in Orleans

Full of history, the old Southward Inn in Orleans leaves a lasting legacy today. In operation for more than a half-century, the old Southward Inn first came to be around 1916.

In the 1920s, Southward Inn was not only a hotel but it had a full restaurant up and running. Business grew substantially. New owners a... Read More
