About OrCHArD

The Orleans County Historical Archives Database was a collection of digitized materials from the Orleans County Department of History. Showcasing significant documents and photographs, the focus of this site is to offer interpretations of those local collections in a way that connects them to larger historical subjects. OrCHArD featured regular digital exhibitions that called attention to significant historical topics that explore the intersections of race, gender, and class in order to add deeper meaning to people, places, and events in Orleans County.

The site was hosted by Matthew Ballard, County Historian (2015-2020), as a donation to the residents of Orleans County.
