About Lake Orion Michigan
Lake Orion, Michigan is a village with only about 3,000 people that is part of the larger Lake Orion Charter Township. It is in Oakland County and situated on the northern edge of the Detroit Metropolitan Area. The village is on the eastern banks of Lake Orion. Michigan Highway 24 runs through the village in a north/south direction. Settlers first arrived in 1824. They built a sawmill. A power dam was built in 1828 to harness the hydropower from the lake water. The Village of Lake Orion got its name in 1928. The village still has many vintage buildings that line its main street, which were built in the 1920s and 1930s.
In the early 20th century, the village was a lakeside resort with a popular amusement park. It had steamboat rides on the lake, dance halls, restaurants, an arcade, a carousel, and a large wooden roller coaster. The Great Depression caused the park to lose visitors and it never recovered back to its glory days. The amusement park closed in 1955. Now, there are beautiful homes where the amusement park used to be.
Lake Orion is about one hour’s drive from downtown Detroit depending on any delays caused by heavy traffic. About 7 miles south of the village, in Auburn Hills, Highway 24 connects with I-75 that goes directly to downtown Detroit.
