Welcome to Orange
Prominent 20th-century local businessman WH Stark and his philanthropic son HL Stark have greatly influenced the cultural offerings in Orange. Tour the Stark Museum of Art, which has collections of native wildlife and bird art, including works by John J Audubon. Or visit the WH Stark House, a museum itself. But our favorite family-funded attraction is the Shangri La Botanical Gardens & Nature Center. Though it's not totally isolated, you can still get a good feel for the area's environment by peering through the bird blind at the heron rookery on Ruby Lake, or by taking a boat ride on Adam's Bayou.
