Researching a Property

Do you know that you can do your own research on historic properties in Orleans? The Massachusetts Historical Commission maintains a database on all properties in Massachusetts that are listed on their Town’s historic inventory. The database is called MACRIS (Massachusetts Cultural Resource Information System), and Orleans has about 400 entries. Our Historical Commission is currently working on a website redesign that will display the full list of Orleans properties with direct links to MACRIS.  Watch this space.
