The Secret Postcard Project, Wish You Were Here!




The OHS Secret Postcard Project will showcase our collective talent—artists and non-artists alike. Project participants will create a piece of art on a 5″ x 7″ postcard, and we’ll auction them off (anonymously!) to support Oysterponds Historical Society.


To request that OHS mail you a postcard and for more info, click  HERE  or contact


Mail the finished, illustrated postcards can be mailed back to OHS or, for those who would prefer to not mail your card, there is a secure mailbox labeled Secret Postcard Project outside Vail House and the Schoolhouse.


⇒  Online Auction: Aug. 31st, bidding ends at noon Monday, Sept. 7th  (details will follow shortly in a separate email)


⇒  Reception (if possible): Saturday, Sept. 5th

The opening bid for each piece will be $50 with increment of $25 thereafter.
