Current Exhibitions

Summer Exhibitions

Every year OHS presents seven new exhibitions featuring a wide range of art, manuscripts, and objects from our collections to illuminate aspects of life in Orient and East Marion, from the 17th century up to the present day. Village House, a former boarding house built in the early 19th century, houses many of these exhibitions in former bedrooms converted to galleries. The Old Point Schoolhouse, which is also home to our family programs throughout the summer, is a second venue for exhibitions.

Our 2019 Summer Exhibitions are open May 25th through September 29th:

Monday, Tuesday: Closed
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Sunday: 2pm – 5pm
Saturday: 11am – 5pm

Please join us for seven new curated exhibits on Orient and East Marion history.

Village House & Webb House

Village House and Webb House showcase different aspects of the history of our American maritime community. Village House invites you to experience life in a boarding house during the 19th century, when Orient began to host a large number of summer visitors who arrived by ferry and train.  Enjoy 19th century life on the main floor, furnished with objects, furniture and art that came from local families and then go upstairs to see exhibitions in the boarding house’s former bedrooms. Just across Village Lane is Webb House, which moved to its location in Poquatuck Park in 1955 and is set up as an 18th-century tavern, furnished with a remarkable collection of antiques, portraits, and maritime art.
