Celebrating Oysterponds
History and Heritage


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.
