Lake Orion Background:
Lake Orion is a village in Oakland County, Michigan. The population was 2,973 at the 2010 census. “Lake Orion” is often used to describe both the village and the much larger Orion Township. The village is a part of the larger Orion Township.
Lake Orion History:
Judah Church and Moses (or Samuel) Munson were among the first settlers. Munson, who arrived in 1824, built a sawmill in 1825, and planted the first orchard. Jesse Decker arrived from upstate New York with his wife, Mary, in 1825. Decker proved to be energetic and became “everything to everybody”, so that the place soon became known as “Decker’s Settlement”, and the town was called “Canandaigua”, after Canandaigua, New York, where the settlers originated. The settlement grew into a bustling commercial center with a sawmill, tavern, post office, general store, blacksmith shop, school and cemetery. In 1828, a power dam was built uniting several small lakes and forming the mile wide Lake Canandaigua, just west of the village.
Lake Orion Geography:
According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 1.30 square miles. Out of that 0.79 square miles is land and 0.51 square miles is water.
Lake Orion Trivia:
The current area of the lake was formed by a collection of smaller lakes over time, beginning with the damming of Paint Creek in the 1830s. Canals have also been dredged to maximize lake frontage. There is a public access boat launch on the northern side of the lake. It is administered by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
