Old Towne Orange is about a square mile area located around the original town plaza. Many of the original buildings still exist and have been refurbished and re-purposed for use as retail stores and restaurants. The area is even on the National Historic Registry as are many of the homes which some date back to the late 1800's.

One will find various styles of homes in Old Towne including Bungalow, Craftsman, Mission or Spanish Revival and Classical Revival. There is also a tax incentive for any home owners with original homes should that particular home qualify for the Mills Act. The Mills Act encourages revitalization and preservation of residential and commercial districts and requirements are governed by local government agencies. To find out if a home qualifies for the Mills Act in Orange one would contact the City of Orange Building Division. The benefit can equate to about half of the yearly taxes of a standard home in the city, or thousands of dollars.

Many homes are a bit smaller in Old Towne with the average two bedroom Craftsman having about one thousand square feet of living space. There are Craftsman homes with up to three thousand square feet and possibly up to five bedrooms.
