Set at the crossroads between the Lower Cape and the Outer Cape, Orleans is one of the most historically significant areas in the entire state.
The sea has influenced the economy of Orleans from the beginning to the present. The fishing industry has waxed and waned through the years according to the supply. Fish weirs and small boat handlining, as well as coastal whaling, thrived in the early years. Today there is a large charter boat sports fishing fleet located in Rock Harbor, which has been the Orleans center of maritime commerce and history.
The advent of the National Seashore Park in 1962 created the complete tourist economy of today. The charm and beauty of the town has created a large retirement population with a younger service population.
