Orrington is a town in Penobscot County, Maine, United States.
Orrington was originally part of Condustiegg (or Kenduskeag) Plantation, which also included the present-day cities of Bangor and Brewer. Orrington was incorporated as a town in 1788 with its major village at Brewer, then called "New Worcester". Bangor incorporated three years later in 1791. Brewer broke away from Orrington in 1812 to form a separate town.
The name "Orrington" reportedly resulted from a spelling mistake. The settlers intended to name it "Orangetown" after Orangetown, Maryland, but it was written on the record-books in distant Massachusetts, of which Maine was then a territory, as "Orrington". "Orring" was a not unreasonable phonetic rendering of "orange" before the standardization of spelling.
According to the US census, the town has a total area of 27.5 square miles, of which, 25.4 square miles is land and 2.1 square miles (7.64%) is water.
As of the 2000 census, there were 3,526 people, 1,396 households, and 1,042 families residing in the town. The population density was 138.8 people per square mile. There were 1,489 housing units at an average density of 58.6 per square mile.
