About the village of lake orion
The Village of Lake Orion is a quaint, historic community located approximately 45 minutes north of Detroit in beautiful northeast Oakland county and about 6 miles north of the Palace of Auburn Hills.
Lake Orion is 1.3 square miles in area, with a 2010 population of 2,973 residents (a 9.5% increase from 2000), and we are growing! The village was first settled in the early 1820s by Judah Church and Moses "Samuel" Munson. Munson built a sawmill in town in 1825, and the Village was incorporated in 1859.
