This 19th-century "Gazetteer or Towns" in Orange County, Vermont devotes at least several pages to each town in the county, most of which is devoted to a detailed account of the first settlers, prominent early citizens, businesses, and churches. Within each section is a description of each village, hamlet, and post office. Of course, the descriptions in most cases also include the town's history, physical description, boundaries, population, and topography.

A preceding historical section includes a detailed narrative about the native Indians, settlement by the whites, and special specials about the copper mines, soil and staple productions, manufactures, internal improvements, and newspapers. Many pages are devoted to detailed sketches of the lives of members of the Orange County Bar.

Genealogist and history buffs will appreciate the sections which describe the impact on the County by the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the "War of the Union," including muster dates for each Civil War regiment and a roster of field, staff and company officers.

The last quarter of the book (more than 200 pages) is a "Business Directory of Orange County, VT" and a "Classified Business Directory of Orange County," each of which details thousands of individuals and firms in the county. The first is organized by town and the second by business type. The business entries typically describe the business, its locations, and sometimes includes biographical information of the principal, parents, spouse, and descriptions of military service.
