Abstract: We review star formation in the southern L1630 molecular cloud (also known as Orion B) as well as the relationship between the young stellar populations and the remnant molecular gas. We begin with an historical introduction to the region, and proceed to discuss recent developments in the study of NGC 2023, NGC 2024, and star formation associated with the Horsehead Nebula. Next we consider the distributed mode of star formation in the L1630 cloud, and conclude with a synthesis of star–forming activity in the region. By comparing and contrasting star formation in Orion B with that found in Orion A, one hopes to discern differences as a function of local initial conditions.
