Part of the Niagara Frontier and located in the western area of New York

State, Orleans County covers a total area of 817 square miles, of which 426

square miles are water. The high proportion of water is due to the extension

of Orleans County north into Lake Ontario to the Canadian border (a line

of latitude running through the middle of the lake). For this reason, the

legend of the Milan, the sunken schooner, is included in these pages, along

with Orleans County's notable citizens. George Pullman of railroad car

fame, Santa Claus School founder Charlie Howard, and children's author Timothy D. Bellavia.
