Texas' easternmost city on the Sabine River boundary with Louisiana was established in 1836, the year of Texas' independence. It was named for the landmark of wild orange groves on the banks of the Sabine, as cited by early French and Spanish boatmen. Today, Orange is a recreational and industrial portal to Texas. Abundant freshwater and saltwater fishing and hunting and birding opportunities are available in vast coastal marshes.
