A rare gem discovered almost by accident. After investigating the historic Webb House across the way were invited back for a tour the following day and a visit to the current textile exhibit at Oysterponds. The Director could not have been more gracious and knowledgable.

this museum has wonderful items on exhibit appropriate for the location. Orient Village is a place locked in time. The Historical Society exhibit is fitting and most enjoyable.

Located in the middle of the quaint village of Orient is the charming Oysterponds Historical Society. 7 buildings help tell the story of this unique Village. A house museum with 6 upstairs exhibits give a sense of the late 19th century. An exhibit space located in the old schoolhouse rotates interesting subject matter changing from year to year. The Webb House another living museum is located on the campus. A drive out to Orient and the surrounding area is a really nice way to spend the day..

Driving down Village Lane in the tiny hamlet of Orient you are transported back in time. 18th & 19th century home line the streets in the historic district. A tiny post office, pie shop (in season) small gift shop and a delightful country store are clustered together along the it's Main Street. Located in the heart of the village are 7 buildings which compete the Oysterponds Historical Society. 2 buildings are open for viewing and serve as house museums telling the story of one of the oldest villages on Long Island. Take a day trip out east to Orient and stop for lunch or dinner in the historic seaside village of Greenport just down the road. Nice way to spend a lazy day out east.

On tiny Village Lane, in the center of Orient, is the historical society. There are often art shows in the Swanson Gallery (especially in summer). There are also several well-preserved buildings from early Orient days. Village Lane itself is like a photo album of a 1950s American street. There's even an ice-cream parlor and a general store and, except for the post office, that's all.
