Town of Orland, Indiana

 "Birthplace of Steuben County"

Welcome to our golf cart-friendly town


Our History

O​rland is recognized as the first settlement in Steuben County, populated by immigrants from Vermont and originally known as Vermont Settlement. Each year in late July, Orland celebrates this heritage with the Vermont Settlement Festival. Orland was settled in 1834 after a Vermont man named John Stocker had gone prospecting for his family and the families of his neighbors. Stocker chose this particular piece of land because of the rich burr-oak openings he found. Pioneers coming from Windham County, Vermont arrived shortly thereafter and built a Baptist church. The town established a post office in 1837.

           A quiet and quaint place to live. 

          You are going to love it here!

We are ready to serve your needs.
