Absolutely fascinating tour of amazing residence. John so knowledgeable and easygoing. There is so much more than the residence to learn about. The history, the art and the backstory of the family and house are really interesting. A must see !!

The society’s campus is a treasure trove of artifacts, including documents, paintings, photos and all manner of household and commercial goods housed in a number of historic buildings in a beautiful setting. The periodic exhibits are worth a visit.

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.
