The Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, will host an event on International Archaelogy Day, Saturday, Oct. 21, at 10:30 a.m.

Admission is $7, $3 for students and free for members.

“The Oneida Community (1848-1880) built a communal home consisting of dozens of buildings and hundreds of acres of land, which they used to support their specific ways of life, work, and thought,” organizers said. During International Archaeology Day participants will seek out evidence of those past uses and try to locate built evidence to re-imagine how life was lived by the Oneida Community, its regional antecedents and descendants. 

Participants should wear comfortable hiking or walking shoes and appropriate clothing for the weather. Binoculars and cameras are encouraged. Call 315-363-0745 or visit www.oneidacommunity.org for more information.
