Exhibitions

Summer 2020 Exhibition: July 17th  –   September 27th


Iceboating in Oysterponds

A few years ago, the late Bob Reeves, one of the North Fork’s preeminent iceboating authorities and practitioners, made a splendid gift to OHS of an important 19th century iceboat named Red Bird. (Reeves was key to an iceboat exhibition held at OHS some 25 years ago.) This year’s exhibition–in the Schoolhouse–will feature the impressive Red Bird iceboat surrounded by many photographs depicting iceboating in Orient harbor and on Hallock’s Bay as well as other winter activities.
