Plumber Orchard Road
The Orchard Road is a planning area as specified by the urban administrative unit. It’s a part of the Central Area located among the Central Region. Orchard is lined by Newton in the east and north, Tanglin in the west, River Valley in the south and Museum to the southeast.
Orchard Road got its name from the nutmeg, pepper and fruit orchards or the plantations that the road once led to. Such plantations were common in the area in the nineteenth century. Other sources attribute the name to Mr Orchard, a gardener and the owner of plantations that were placed at the corner of current-day Scotts Road and Orchard Road.
