Orangefield is an unincorporated community situated at the junction of Farm Roads 105 and 408, in the Beaumont-Port Arthur metropolitan area, twenty miles east of Beaumont in south-central Orange County, Texas. It was named after an "Orange Oil Field" which was later shorted to "Orangefield" was discovered in 1913. A major producing well came in 1921 and post office was opened in 1922 making it an oil boomtown during the mid-1930s. A second oil boom in 1937 revived the area but the status only lasted a few years until World War II. Also, Orangefield and the nearby oilfields were for a time plagued by flooding from Cow Bayou, which runs through the community. In 1963 Congress agreed to channel the first 7.7 miles of the watercourse which included a provision for a turning basin at Orangefield. However, only the first seven miles had been completed by 1967. The Orangefield Independent School District served students in the area and the city also reached a population of 725 in 1990.
