Beaverdam Lake-Salisbury Mills is in Orange County, New York. It is in the idyllic middle region of the Hudson Valley. The county was named in honor of William III of Orange who was held in high esteem by the regionís earliest settlers, and, in 1683, it was one of the first dozen counties established by the Province of New York.


Orange County, due to its small population size, shared government functions with the other counties.

In 1703, the first public buildings were constructed in Orangetown, and in 1801, the first court was established. Because of a boundary dispute between New Jersey and New York, it was not until the

19th century that the southern boundary of Orange County was determined.


Some of the well-known places in the county include the United States Military Academy at West Point, the Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame in Goshen, the Brotherhood Winery, and the Times Herald-Record newspaper.
