OSV is excited to begin reintroducing programs that they couldn’t offer due to COVID-19 restrictions. Buildings are now open and you’ll find costumed historians at work both inside and outside. This summer, the Village will still look a little different than it did prior to the pandemic. Learn more about Village policies here.
