I want to thank one of my readers for suggesting that I start writing about the history of Old Towne Orange. I personally know very little about Old Towne’s history, so I enlisted a guest blogger,Renee Dallas who runs the OTO Walking Food Tours, to write up some historical tidbits that we could all enjoy reading. I hope you all enjoy this new section of the blog, as always, your comments and suggestions are welcome!
