Founded in 2009, the Orangefield Cormier Museum brings visitors back to the 1920s, when Orange was a rural but thriving oil town. The museum is comprise of two large buildings, one which contains a recreated 1920s village featuring a post office, jail, bank, general store, and other exhibits. All of them contain period furnishings and items on display. The other building features a skating rink (which has parts of an original wooden skating floor), a replica school complete with old books and lunch boxes, old toys, antique cars, and an oil rig.


  • Orangefield Cormier Museum was founded in 2009.

The museum was envisioned by Orange resident Paul Cormier (1919-2009), who worked as a oil well service and drilling contractor throughout his life. He was very involved in the community, serving on a number of boards and active member of the First Baptist Church Orangefield.
