The History of Orangeburg Kentucky
Like this one:
By legislative act of February 29, 1836, the town of Williamsburg in Mason County became known thereafter as Orangeburg.
Legend says that the reason behind this name change was to avoid confusion between the town and the Williamsburg in southeastern Kentucky, now the county seat of Whitley County. However, further investigation sheds doubt on the legend, as that community was known as "Whitley Courthouse" until 1882, when it was changed to Williamsburg. This was nearly fifty years after the name change for the Mason County town. The reasons behind the change may be lost to history, but apparently the town was renamed in honor of a prominent local citizen and landowner, Providence Orange Pickering.
The story of Orangeburg is a fascinating tale in the larger story of American exploration and settlement. For the full story, you absolutely must check out this article refered to us by historian Ken Downing:
