Celebrating Oysterponds
History and Heritage

Located in the heart of Orient, New York, on Long Island’s North Fork, the Oysterponds Historical Society (OHS) is home to an extraordinary collection housed and exhibited on our campus of historic buildings and green spaces. OHS’ collections include art and manuscripts, as well as an exceptional range of historical objects donated by local residents, including community members whose roots in Oysterponds date back to the founding families in the 17th century. We welcome the public seasonally to annual exhibitions, programs and community events and invite you to explore beautifully restored buildings which showcase previous chapters of life in our unique community. Admission is always free. Come join us and visit us here in Orient!

Exhibitions

The annual summer exhibitions in Village House and the Old Point Schoolhouse draw on OHS’ extraordinary collection of art, manuscripts, and historical objects, illustrating stories of Orient and East Marion. Village House and Webb House, restored to illustrate life in a 19th century boarding house and 18th century tavern, invite visitors to experience previous chapters of life here in Oysterponds.
