(ORLEANS, IN) - The town of Orleans recently learned its downtown has been placed on National Register of Historic Places.

A nomination was submitted to the Department of the Interior's National Park Service by Saving Historic Orange County.

Plans are reportedly in the works for a brief dedication ceremony with a formal celebration during the Dogwood Festival next spring.
