Oraville is an unincorporated community in St. Mary's County, Maryland, United States. Oraville is located at the intersection of Maryland Route 6 and Maryland Route 235 6.3 miles (10.1 km) southeast of Charlotte Hall.

The name Oraville is believed to be named after a Girl named Ora Hopkins. Her Stepfather Nicholas S Hopkins ran a millinery store in the early 1900's which was also a Post office on the corner of Morganza Turner Rd and Rt 235. The house still stands but is in ruins now.[citation needed]
