Orford was first incorporated as a town in 1761 by Governor Benning Wentworth. At the time, it was simply known as “Number Seven,” as it was the seventh in a line of fort towns along the Connecticut River. Years later, its name was changed to Orford in honor of Robert Walpole, the Earl of Orford and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. By the late 1800s, Orford had become a successful milling town, boasting 10 saw mills, a tannery, a gristmill, two shoe factories and other industrial operations.
