We've been talking about visiting here for years--finally made it yesterday. This was well worth the $5 admission. It was certainly an interesting community--and what they accomplished even after disbanding! Some really lovely rooms and intriguing history and the special braiding exhibit was amazing!

the Noyes Commune which became Oneida Silver is studied in colleges...a jewel right here, where descendants of selective parenting occurred.

We arrived late for the guided tour (no signage - mansion a little hard to find) but the attendant was happy to give us a private tour! She was very knowledgeable and interesting. The Oneida Community was a religious society with some fascinating "doctrines" such...More
