Since visitors can’t come to the Mansion House right now, we’re bringing the Mansion House to you!
OCMH is excited to announce the launch of a NEW online exhibit:
This exhibit shares the events and activities that took place when 30 students and alums from Cornell University came to OCMH to spend the weekend conducting hands-on preservation work on our buildings and grounds. In just two days the students finished projects it would have taken our staff and regular volunteers weeks, if not months to accomplish. We are incredibly grateful to them for their energy and enthusiasm!
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. Click here to learn more about the history of the OC!
