Internship Opportunities


The OCMH does not offer stipends at this time; however, our institution is happy to work with students who are applying through their accredited college or university to obtain credit for this unique experiential learning opportunity. OCMH can provide housing for the course of the internship. For any questions about the application process, please contact OCMH by phone: 315-363-0745. 

The OCMH is a 19th-century National Historic Landmark built by and for the utopian socialist Oneida Community in central New York State. OCMH comprises 93,000 square feet of interior space sited on over 200 acres of landscaped grounds. The Mansion House includes exhibits, period rooms, a library, and continues to provide lodging and residential housing. OCMH conducts programming and sponsors research on 19th and early 20th-century society and themes, such as communitarianism, gender, class, childhood, agriculture, industrialization, artistic expression, and craft work.

To support efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and safeguard the community, the Oneida Community Mansion House is temporarily CLOSED to the public. We look forward to opening Mansion House spaces for all to enjoy when circumstances allow.


In the meantime, look for our online offerings and stay connected via this site, Facebook, Instagram and our email subscriptions.


If you are local, please enjoy OCMH gardens, grounds and trails safely and responsibly obeying all state and local health ordinances.
