The annual Dogwood Festival celebrates the town’s beautiful Dogwood blossoms each spring.

Orleans is a small rural community located in scenic Southern Indiana with “Mayberry” qualities. Experience the perfect Midwest small town…historic, charming and friendly.

The small, quaint little town turns 200 years old in 2015 (1815-2015). This milestone will be celebrated with special events throughout the year, so mark your calendars and plan to be a part of the year-long birthday Bicentennial Celebration.

The Orleans Historic District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.
