The Mansion House is the historic home of the utopian Oneida Community (1848-1880). Today, the non-profit organization, the Oneida Community Mansion House (OCMH) tells the story of America’s most successful experimental community and the joint stock company that emerged after its breakup.
The Community’s radical social practices, which included living and working communally and advocating for women’s equality, challenged contemporary ideas of family and gender roles in ways that are still relevant today. Their progressive philosophy is evident in the Mansion House itself, the design of which reflects their values and social organization.
