If shopping suits you better, a two-minute walk will bring you into downtown Orange and its quaint antique shops, and with a 3/4 hour drive you will find yourself at the Yankee Candle flagship store, the "Scenter of New England". Also a pleasant 40 minute drive away, the five-college area of Northampton and Amherst, and in other directions: the famous Bridge of Flowers at Shelburne Falls and Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory are both within an hours' travel. Nearby Brattleboro, Vermont is also 45 minutes north and is an arts and shopping destination.

Parts of Orange transforming into 'Castle Rock' for Hulu series

ORANGE, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -


In just a few weeks, the little town of Orange, Massachusetts will be completely transformed.

Businesses in Orange are starting to look a little run down, but that's on purpose - to make the town look like Castle Rock, ME - the fictional, eerie town at the center of many Stephen King's novels.


"Please pardon out appearance, thanks for your cooperation, Castle Rock." are signs you see around town in Orange, including outside of The Pizza Factory, but now, it's Castle Rock Pizza Factory. "I think everyone is as excited as we are. We have a lot of customers coming in just to talk to us about it." said Panagiotis Vlahakis, manger of The Pizza Factory.

The name change isn't confusing to any potential patrons. The now Castle Rock Pizza Factory is taking their name change in stride. "I've never seen, been a part of anything like this, so it's fun," Vlahakis explained. The transformations are all part of a new series on Hulu titled "Castle Rock."
Trail Head Outfitters will soon look totally closed, but that's perfectly fine with owner Paul Anderson. He's excited to be a part of it. "They said we might have to drill some holes into your bricks. I said that's alright as long as you fill them up afterwards," Anderson said. It's more than just changing the fa├žade of the buildings in town. The production crews are purchasing things like lumber locally to help the economy.
