International Archaeology Day at Oneida Community Mansion House included a walking tour of the structures and landscape that comprised the 19th century community, and an interpretation of the built structures and structural remnants from that era. Participants explored the sites of the first community millworks, of the original timber-framed Mansion House, the original Community cemetery, and remnant features of the Oswego & Midland railroad that connected the OC with ‘the world’ (and enabled the Community’s commercial viability).
