Historic Orleans Cemetery

The oldest cemetery in the Town of Orleans is historic Greenhill. This burial ground was first laid out when the town was first founded in 1815. Many of the town’s early pioneer families rest in this old town cemetery.

Across from Greenhill just to the north is the Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F) Cemetery, which was opened in 1879. There are a number of burials prior to that date and those were moved here from other cemeteries. 

The newer cemetery Fairview, located just west of Odd Fellows was laid out and opened in 1910.

Historic Lindley House

OCHS also owns and maintains the historic Thomas Elwood Lindley House. The home was built on land granted in 1812 to Jonathan Lindley when he left North Carolina to settle in Orange County. Jonathan was the grandfather of Thomas Elwood Lindley (1825-1900), an influential Quaker. He served in the State Legislature at Indiana’s first Capitol in Corydon. The house is restored in part to reflect the period from the mid-1850s to the late 1860s when it was used as a farm home.

The old farmhouse, located just off the Hwy. 150 West on Willow Creek Rd. in Paoli is available for tours by appointment only.
