Migrants have played a significant role over many years in the history and development of Orange, especially in the two decades immediately following the end of World War II. The earliest post-war migrants were from the Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and other European nations deeply affected by the war, including Hungary, Poland, Yugoslavia, Ukraine and Holland.
Later migrants mainly came from the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany and Greece. They brought skills, languages and culture to their new home and contributed to the advancement of the city in many ways. Migrants have contributed in many and varied ways to the cultural development of the city, effectively changing it from a largely Anglo-Irish centre to the vibrant multicultural community it is today. The Orange Migration Heritage Trail and brochure traces the history and significance of these places.
The small villages of Lucknow and Spring Hill have their own trails, taking you along once prosperous streets of yesteryear.
