This is an historic oddity. Learn about the odd sex based cult, shrouded in religion. Nice old house to tour.

The Oneida Community is a fascinating historical location. The communal living concepts, silver products and residence, return the visitor to the period. The entire operation is well done.

The room was just "eh" and smelled of stale air. Was comfortable and clean (though stuffy air). Very outdated, but not in a historical way; in a 1970s way (but not interesting retro; just horribly out of date, with old-school tube-tv that buzzed).

The other answer-- no, it's not haunted, but the mansion house provides a fascinating glimpse into a very different way of life-- is completely accurate. J.H. Noyes was hopelessly paternalistic by any but the most antiquated... More
