Old Point Schoolhouse Exhibition – Casting a Wide Net: Fishing on the North Fork

Saturday, May 28 | 11:00 am - Sunday, September 25 | 5:00 pm
A brand-new exhibition in the Old Point Schoolhouse, drawn from OHS’s exceptional collection, explores the dynamic history of fishing in Orient and East Marion, with a focus on the hard work and resourcefulness of those who have harvested our waters, from the people of the Algonquian Nation to today’s Peconic baymen. Will include an examination of the importance of menhaden, scallops, and oysters to the area. Plus a bunch of fun and “fishy” activities for kids!



Opens on Saturday, May 28th.


Hours are Fridays and Sundays 2 to 5pm; Saturdays 11am to 5pm.


Admission for OHS Members and children is free.


Admission for non-members is $10, which grants same-day admission to all exhibitions.
