"It's appropriate that it's being put there," John Kolstad of California Bells, the company that cast the bell, told the Orange County Register. "Chapman Avenue is part of that route."
The bell cost about $2,200 and was funded by a local chapter of The Questers, a local group that supports preservation projects, the Register reported.
Orange was incorporated on April 6, 1888, even though the town's central plaza was laid out nearly 20 years earlier by city founders Alfred Chapman and Andrew Glassell.
Mayor Carolyn Cavecche, who is slated to give a short speech at the dedication, said the city is planning a larger celebration for the city's 125th anniversary.
