Orangeville, Ontario was named after Orange Lawrence – a colourfully named settler who moved from Connecticut in 1844 and became a catalyst for the town’s development. Colourful history!
In 2015, The Canadian Institute of Planners named Orangeville’s Broadway Street as the “Great Street” in its annual Great Places in Canada contest. Great!
Orangeville is the home town of retired WWE Hall of Fame wrestler, Edge (real name Adam Joseph Copeland) whose finishing move was
The Spear, which also became his catchphrase. Spear!
