Located 6 km north of Orange on Burrendong Way, March is said to have been named by Sir Thomas Mitchell as a compliment to a renowned Beauty of England, the Countess of March in 1829.

A school opened in 1886 and after 107 years of services the Post Office closed in 1984.  A few clusters of houses and two churches remain to mark the place of March in the district’s history.

The village was part of the Canobolas Shire until 1977 when Orange city amalgamated with part of the Canobolas Shire.
