Named for William, Prince of Orange, and son-in-law of King George II, Orangeburg was first settled in 1704 by an Indian trader named George Sterling. In 1735, a colony of Swiss, German and Dutch immigrants formed a community near the banks of the North Edisto River, which provided an outlet to the port of Charleston, and which grew into the town of Orangeburg, the seat of Orangeburg County, South Carolina.
