History[edit]

Orient was established as a station on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in the northwest corner of Scioto township.

Local residents began seeking dissolution in January 2012.[6] Thirty-three signatures were collected, one more than required by Ohio law to gain ballot access, but the county board of elections rejected the petition when it was found to have more signatures than those certified by the petition circulator.[7] A new petition resulted in a May 2013 vote, in which the village residents supported dissolution by a margin of 38-30.[8]
