A brand-new exhibition in the Old Point Schoolhouse, drawn from Oysterponds Historical Society’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.

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