LETTER FROM THE MAYOR
On behalf of the City Council and Administrative Staff, I welcome you to the City of Orr website, and invite you to discover the many great things Orr has to offer. Whether you’re visiting here for business, vacation, or have lived here for years, we hope the website will assist you in finding information about the City and area amenities.
Founded in 1905, Orr is a quaint, full service community nestled on the shores of Pelican Lake. We are a small town with a large sense of community. We are praised for the attributes of a small town atmosphere, yet we welcome opportunities to accommodate new growth, and seek new ideas from residents, business partners and visitors.
Our top-notch volunteer ambulance service and fire department is furnished with state-of- the-art equipment to keep us safe. We are very fortunate to have such caring citizens within our community.
We are very proud of our City! Situated at the gateway to Voyageur’s National Park and on the shores of its own beautiful lake, Orr offers the very best in outdoor activities in a pristine, wilderness setting. Enjoy our breathtaking sunsets, starry skies and the finest nature has to offer.
If you’re already a part of our community – thank you! If you’re considering relocating your home or business to Orr, or simply thinking about a visit, please do so. You won’t be disappointed!
Joel R. Astleford
