The beginning: 1887 Orland News – In 1902 The Orland register and in 1911 The Orland Unit-yes!  two newspapers it wasn’t until 1962 the paper became The Orland Unit Register.
 In 1973 the birth of the Orland Daily Unit Register -yes!  We had a daily paper, then in 1981 The Orland Unit register and Orland Press – yes! again two papers
Then the death of the Orland Unit Register in 1982. In 1983,  The Press Register, Then 1989-to the present: Orland Press-Register for a little town we sure like to reinvent ourselves – so come on in and check out a bit of our local history
