The Red Barn



The 19th century Red Barn was built originally as a grain storage shed located on the Orient wharf. In 2024 it will be revitalized and repurposed as an exhibition space. Thanks to a grant from NY State—the Red Barn will be home to a permanent multi-media exhibition focusing on the storied farming and fishing history of Long Island’s North Fork.


In the most recent past, the building stored some of the larger scale objects in OHS’s collections, including horse-drawn carriages and sleighs.
