Orson, Pennsylvania

'''Orson''' is a village (Local government in Pennsylvania#Village) in Preston Township (Preston Township, Wayne County, Pennsylvania), Wayne County (Wayne County, Pennsylvania), Pennsylvania. It was once an important depot (Train station) of the Scranton Division of the New York, Ontario & Western (O&W) Railway (New York, Ontario and Western Railway#History), but today, when it is known outside of its immediate vicinity, it is largely for being the site of the intersection (Intersection (road)) of two state roads (List of State Routes in Pennsylvania), Belmont Turnpike (partially concurrent (Concurrency (road)) with Pennsylvania Route 670, or PA-670) and Crosstown Highway (entirely concurrent with PA-370 (Pennsylvania Route 370)), or as the location of Independent Lake Camp (ILC), since ILC's reputation and commercial reach, like those of most rural (Rural area) American summer camps (Summer camp#United States), extend beyond the community in which the camp is physically located.
