Guided Tours

Village House, the Old Point Schoolhouse, and Webb House are self-guided. However, there are always docents present to answer questions.


Docents are our ambassadors and make a lasting impact while greeting visitors and answering questions at Village House, Webb House, and the Old Point Schoolhouse.  If you’d like to volunteer to be a docent, click here.

Look, But Please Don’t Touch

While we encourage you to engage with the historical objects in OHS’s Collections, please do not touch or handle them as they are unique, fragile and, above all, irreplacable.


Visitors to our exhibits are welcome to take photographs for personal, noncommercial use. Photography may be restricted for loaned works of art. Flash photography is not allowed. OHS reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to withhold and/or withdraw permission to photograph on its premises.

For press and other special photography, including film projects, please contact the office during business hours at 631-323-2480 or

Painting & Sketching

Artists are always welcome at the Oysterponds Historical Society! Sketching is always permitted in our exhibit areas. If you wish to paint within a gallery, please contact us first at 631-323-2480 or
