The town has been popularized over the years for its beaches, which are situated on both the wild Atlantic Ocean and calmer Cape Cod Bay. Orleans is located within Barnstable County, which is one of the top places to live in the state. The sea has influenced the economy of Orleans from the beginning to the present. Salt works were located on the bay and Town cove shores. There were many domestic needs for salt and the fishing fleet’s requirements were large for fish preservation.

Early Days of Orleans

The town’s early history revolved around fishing, whaling, and agriculture. As the fishing industry grew, salt works sprang up to help preserve the catches. However, the town’s growth depleted it of lumber, a situation that did not begin to be remedied until the railroad came and brought lumber from the mainland in the 19th century. The railroad also brought tourism to the town.
