Orting is a city in Pierce County, Washington, United States. The population as of the 2010 census is 6,746, according to the City of Orting. Orting is a very small city located approximately 30 miles from Mount Rainier. The first ever recorded claims for the land in Orting were made in 1854 by William Henry Whitesell, Thomas Headley, Daniel Lane and Daniel Varner. These 4 people all have streets in the city named after them, plus a monument in the Orting City Park commemorating them. The city was officially incorporated on April 22, 1889. Early growth came as the area developed fields to grow hops, produce, and logging industries. Later Christmas tree and bulb farms became important to the local economy. Orting was also a supply town for the coal mining towns of Wilkeson and Carbonado. The first railroad in the city was built in 1877 by the Northern Pacific Railway. It was called "Whitesell's Crossing" because the railroad ran right through the Whitesell property. Population rose quickly after this railroad was built, as it made transportation in and out of the city much easier. What's left of the railroad is now the Meeker Southern Railroad which runs between Puyallup and McMillin.
